For the most part Liverpool have steered clear of big money, big name signings in recent years – Virgil van Dijk is an obvious exception. However, the club could well break from this policy if the right player becomes available and the right player may well be available next season. Liverpool could land Jadon Sancho next year with Manchester United reportedly pulling out of the chase.
Jadon Sancho has established himself as perhaps the most valuable, exciting youngster on the planet.
The Englishman banged in an incredible 17 goals and bagged 17 assists in 32 appearances in the German Bundesliga last season.
Playing off either wing, the pacy Dortmund star has been attracting the attention of just about every major club in Europe and with good reason.
United pulling out of the race
According to the Daily Star, Manchester United are considering pulling out of the race for the winger.
The report claims that the Red Devils executives are growing frustrated with the German club’s unwillingness to do business.
The Star states that Dortmund want £108m for the wonderkid whilst United are unwilling to go above their £80m valuation.
United’s pursuit of the Three Lions international is well documented and has gone on all summer, however, the Bundesliga giants have been adamant that they won’t be selling their prize asset.
Liverpool could bag Sancho next season
If Manchester United do pull out of the race then Liverpool could have a run at Jadon Sancho next season.
Jamie Carragher recently said that the Reds would be interested in the youngster next year as they look to plan for the future with the front three all approaching their 30s.
At the minute the club is strapped for cash due to the impact of the global health crisis but FSG could well be more confident in their finances by next year.
