Boy wonder

It is no surprise that Jadon Sancho has been linked with Liverpool and just about every other major European club.

The English winger is arguably the finest prospect in world football at the moment at just 20-years-old he has been tearing the Bundesliga apart for two seasons.

This most recent campaign the Englishman bagged an outrageous 17 goals and 16 assists in 25 starts and 7 sub appearances. These are just unholy stats.

The article states that the German giants want an eye watering €120m for their boy wonder and United haven’t come close to their valuation yet.

Kicker also pointed that there is something of an ongoing joke that United will always pay what is required when it comes down to it.

What RTK has to say

Jadon Sancho preferring a move to Liverpool comes as no surprise. Anfield is the place to be at the moment, there are few coaches in the world with the same appeal as Jürgen Klopp and players will be falling over themselves to play for him.

The fact of the matter is that we simply cannot afford him. The boss has already pointed out that we will be working with a tighter budget due to the pandemic, we can’t expect them to splash out over £100m in these circumstances.

We can only hope that Sancho sticks at Dortmund for one more year and we can swoop in next summer when he only has a year remaining on his contract.
