Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s view on Jadon Sancho transfer amid Man Utd interest | Football | Sport
Liverpool have since, though, also emerged as potential suitors.
That’s because Dortmund will try and get a huge fee for the 19-year-old, with the Bundesliga giants notoriously stubborn in the transfer market.
And it’s also claimed that there’s no truth to claims that Sancho is house-hunting in the local area.
Dortmund have admitted that their teenage sensation could leave in the next two years, with coach Jorg Heinrich saying: ”Jadon can become one of the best players in Europe, or even the world.
“He should know Dortmund is an excellent place for young players to play consistently and to develop on a very, very high level.
“It won’t be easy to keep him at Dortmund. We hope he plays one or two seasons longer.
“But we all know very, very big clubs with a lot of money want to have him in their team.”
United’s interest in Sancho is thought to be bigger than Liverpool’s.
Yet ESPN’s Ian Darke believes the Dortmund star should reject a move to Old Trafford because it’s a ‘step down’.
“[From Dortmund] to Manchester United? No, he’d be talking a step down,” he said on ESPN FC.
“Let’s be blunt about it, this is a team in the bottom half of the table.
“This is Manchester United, and they’ve still got the gloss and the glamour that sticks to the name, just about.
“I know Manchester United would be interested, but the queue would be halfway around Europe for this youngster.”
