Family members insist Man Utd target Sancho would favour Liverpool move

Family sources insist Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho would favour a move to Liverpool over suitors Manchester United.

United are closing in on a deal for the England international.

But it was recently suggested in Germany that the 20-year-old England ace was hoping Premier League champions Liverpool would come in for him, as they would provide him with a better chance of winning silverware.

And that claim was echoed by talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook and former Liverpool star Danny Murphy yesterday.

Murphy said of Sancho: “I did hear that his preference would be Liverpool ahead of United."

Replying to Murphy's comment, Crook said: "I heard the same and that has actually come from a family member of Jadon Sancho's that lives over here in England.

“That was before the pandemic and before Jurgen Klopp could justify spending big money on Timo Werner."
