Barnes: Liverpool and Man Utd would suit Sancho, but Pep...

Liverpool great John Barnes says Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho must choose carefully his next club.

Both Liverpool and Manchester United are being credited with interest in the England international.

"I think Manchester United and Liverpool will suit Jadon Sancho, but Manchester City have a different kind of football to how he plays," Barnes told BonusCodeBets.co.uk.

"Players from Dortmund generally are good at playing for most clubs. He has to look at the teams he's going to in terms of the players that are there and whether he will play regularly.

"Whatever club Sancho goes to, he has to decide if he can fit in well with what a club wants. Take Jesse Lingard as an example, he's doing very well at West Ham and it doesn't mean that he will do that at Manchester United where he'll have to play second-fiddle to Pogba and Fernandes.

"It's a question that Jadon Sancho has to look at the type of football a club plays and see if he can realise his potential at a club rather than joining the side that will pay him the most money or is the most prestigious."
