Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp given Jadon Sancho transfer instruction after Man Utd error
Manchester United missed out on Jadon Sancho in the summer transfer window and Liverpool have now been linked with a move for the Borussia Dortmund star. John Barnes has warned Jurgen Klopp against signing the England international though.
The Reds have Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane as their options in attack.
Liverpool also added Diogo Jota from Liverpool in the summer and Barnes thinks signing Sancho would be a waste.
The Reds legend thinks the 20-year-old would end up sitting on the bench.
United made Sancho their top transfer target this summer but were unable to get a deal over the line because of Dortmund’s £108m price tag.

He told Bonus Code bets: “I can’t see Sancho getting in ahead of Mane, Salah or [Roberto] Firmino, so for him to come he would have to fight for a place and not necessarily be in the team.
“I don’t think anyone from the front three will be replaced and seeing as they’ve just signed Jota and they have [Divock] Origi and [Xherdan] Shaqiri, it doesn’t make sense to get Sancho.
“I’d be very surprised if they get him.

“It’s good to get great players, but are Liverpool going to spend £100m on one player?
“I doubt it very much. I don’t think that’s one that will happen.”
Sancho was in sensational form last season, netting 20 goals and providing 20 assists.
Liverpool had a busy transfer window and signed the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Jota to further strengthen their side.
Barnes added: “For two young players such as Hudson-Odoi and Sancho, with a long way to go and a lot to learn, I do believe they’re at the right clubs at this moment in time,” Barnes said.
“Of course it’s great to have a move lined up but unless you are an experienced top player, that move doesn’t mean you’ll be played; especially when it comes to a club like Manchester United.
“So for Sancho, I’d still like him to continue doing what he’s doing at his current club and to show that level of consistency before he actually moves. That, I believe, will set him up for a great career.”
