Liverpool had a busy transfer deadline day this week. The Reds were hard at work trying to tie up some last minute deals to salvage the defence in the midst of a crisis. Many believe the club’s reluctance in the market points towards bigger things in the summer. According to The Express, Liverpool target Jadon Sancho is no longer being chased by Man United.
Deadline day activity
The Reds were expected to make a signing on the day the transfer window opened.
Well, that was the thinking in November. When the club lost their starting partnership for the season it seemed inevitable that there’d be a signing through the door as soon as possible.
However, the club told everyone that there wasn’t the money available and we had to wait until the summer.
Many believed this pointed towards the club gearing up for some megabucks moves in a few months time.

Liverpool target Jadon Sancho
Back in October we saw The Independent report that Liverpool were looking at Jadon Sancho for a 2021 transfer.
The Guardian reported that his price tag stood at £108m then.
The Englishman had been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United last summer but the Red Devils failed to meet Borussia Dortmund’s asking price and the German side stood firm on not selling him after their personal deadline passed.
United end interest in Sancho
According to The Express, Manchester United may have ended their interest in the winger.
The outlet has claimed that the impressive signs shown by newbie Amad Diallo has caused the Red Devils to cool their pursuit of Dortmund’s wide man.
Diallo was signed from Atalanta over the summer but he only arrived in January.
Since then he’s impressed for the U23s, putting in a shift against the Reds’ youngsters.
Liverpool could have a clear run at Jadon Sancho if The Express are right about United’s intentions.
