Liverpool legend Nicol urges Sancho to resist Man Utd

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol has urged Jadon Sancho not to join Manchester United.

The young English winger looks set to leave Borussia Dortmund next summer, with both United and Liverpool showing an interest.

"I think he's crazy if he goes to Man United," Nicol told ESPN FC.

"We're talking about he's struggling in a team that's struggling [Dortmund] - Man United are going to be struggling for a couple of seasons, so I would stay away from there."

And Nicol also doesn't see Sancho joining his former club.

"Well if I was advising him, let me put it that way, I would like to see him at Liverpool," Nicol added.

"I think he would be fantastic. If he could get his head round playing second fiddle to [Sadio] Mane and [Mohamed] Salah, then that would be huge for Liverpool in my opinion.

"They could save the legs of both of those two and kind of swap the three of them in and out.

"But he's not going to do that, he's going to go somewhere to play. So I think Liverpool's out."
