Agent: Klopp will leave Sancho to Man Utd

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp won't compete for the signing of Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho.

Manchester United are leading the way to sign the forward, who is tipped to command a transfer fee of around £120million.

And a transfer to Liverpool seems to be unlikely for two key reasons, as outlined by an agent who spoke to the South China Morning Post.

"Liverpool are not in the market for £100million players and they don't need him," the unnamed agent said.

"I've dealt with Klopp – they'd rather pay half that amount for a player a step or two behind Sancho who they think they can improve."
