Jadon Sancho ‘prefers Liverpool move to Manchester United’

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho would reportedly prefer to join Liverpool over Manchester United should the opportunity arise this summer.

United have long been linked with the prolific 20-year-old and have recently stepped up their pursuit of their number one transfer target after securing Champions League qualification on the final day of the Premier League season.

Sancho is understood to be open to a move back to England, having joined Dortmund from Manchester City, but German publication Kicker reports that he would rather join reigning English, European and world champions Liverpool than United.

The England international believes that he would have a good chance of winning silverware in his first season should he move to Anfield, whereas at Old Trafford he would be joining a team in transition.

However, Liverpool are not expected to entertain the idea of bringing the winger to Merseyside this summer due to the cost involved, with Dortmund demanding a fee of £110m for Sancho.

The Reds have ruled out the possibility of spending significant money this summer and have already pulled out of a £54m deal to sign Timo Werner, who subsequently joined Chelsea.

Sancho has scored 20 goals and created 20 more in 44 appearances for Dortmund across all competitions this season.
