Jadon Sancho wonderkid

There are few youngsters out there with more potential than Jadon Sancho.

The 20-year-old wide forward has been one of the brightest young talents in the world for a few years now.

Last season he netted an incredible 17 goals along with 16 assists in 32 Bungesliga appearances.

This season he has failed to score in the league but Dortmund as a club have been faltering, culminating in a recent change of manager.

Liverpool to challenge for Jadon Sancho

A story as old has time has received a further update.

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Liverpool will challenge for Jadon Sancho in the summer.

The journalist believes that if United don’t get a deal wrapped up early then others could join the race. Romano told the Que Golazo Podcast:

“I think he’s moving next summer.

“Yes, as we said, it’s so difficult in January, we’ve said that so many times about Jadon Sancho, because Borussia Dortmund are not huge to sell their players in the middle of a season, of a complicated season as they are having.

“So they need their stars to be back at a top level, and they don’t want to sell Jadon Sancho in January.

“Next summer, I expect Jadon Sancho to leave the club and be back in the Premier League.

“We have to understand if Manchester United will arrive with €120m (£109m), if they will be ready this time to sign the player or if they’ll take the risk of other clubs joining the race.

“I will say like Liverpool, Chelsea, and a lot of clubs are scouting the situation of Jadon Sancho, so at this point the race is open.”

What RTK has to say

Liverpool signing Jadon Sancho would be a dream move.

The youngster is destined for a decade of greatness in the game.

Whoever signs him next will likely have him for the better part of his career.

Though, his arrival would likely mean one of the front three leaving.

Perhaps that is a worthwhile trade given the age of Sancho in comparison to our starting forward line.
