Liverpool chances of signing Jadon Sancho revealed by Rio Ferdinand as Man Utd eye star
Liverpool transfer target Jadon Sancho wouldn’t get in Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI, Manchester United hero Rio Ferdinand claims. The Borussia Dortmund winger has been tipped to return to the Premier League this summer. Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea are all eyeing the England international, 20.
However, Ferdinand has warned Liverpool off signing the forward, with the pundit claiming Sancho isn’t better than Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino.
“As good as Jadon Sancho is I don’t think he gets into Liverpool’s team right now,” Ferdinand said on an Instagram Q&A.
“Whether he’s a better player than any of them, right now I don’t think he is, potentially I think he could be, but right now the three of them play so well together, how do you break that up?
“That’s the thing for Liverpool, how do they evolve from where they are now?
“That’s a big thing for Klopp but it’s a great position to be in.
“Who wouldn’t want to be in that position?”
Premier League clubs will have to fork out over £100m for Sancho this summer.
Ferdinand has been vocal on United’s interest in Sancho ahead of the summer transfer window, with the pundit urging Ed Woodward to break the bank to land the winger.
“He’s one of the best young kids in the world at the moment. He has been unbelievable, he’s a player of huge potential,” Ferdinand added.
“[Ousmane] Dembele, who was at Dortmund then went to Barcelona, was thought of similarly to Sancho and went [to a big club] for big money and it didn’t work out for him.
“I don’t want to see that for Jadon. I want him to go to a team where he will play and then improve.

“He’s going to be expensive but I think Manchester United is the place for him to go, but I’m biased.
“Sancho will go for over £100million – it’s the potential you are buying, someone who will be at your club for 10 years.
“It’s massive money but I’d take him. I’d tell him ‘You’re the guy we are going to build the team around’. He’s got that X-factor.
“He has all the potential to be a humongous superstar. He brings the playground to the football field. Not many people do that.”
