Souness says Man Utd risk having "trousers taken down" in Sancho transfer

Graeme Souness warned Manchester United they risk having their “trousers taken down” if they have agreed a deal with Jadon Sancho behind Borussia Dortmund's back.

United are working on a £120million deal to sign England winger Sancho this summer, amid claims that personal terms and length of contract have already been agreed.

But Liverpool legend Souness said United risk seeing Dortmund raise their asking price for Sancho if they have negotiated with his camp before approaching the German club.

“I don’t see it, unless the whole world has changed," said Souness, who used the same phrase "trousers taken down" when United re-signed Paul Pogba for a club record £89million in 2016 .

"I don't think you get into personal terms, length of contract, buy-outs and clauses, until the two clubs have decided on a fee.

“I mean the first thing is that the two clubs come to an agreement, the rest comes second, so I’m not sure that can be correct.

“If you’re United and you're doing that, without a deal done with Dortmund, you'll have your trousers taken down when you get round a table with Dortmund.
