Jadon Sancho ‘will go to Liverpool’ amid Man Utd transfer debate

Jadon Sancho's future is the subject of debate up and down the land, with the winger set to play a major role in England's attempt to lift a trophy at this summer's European Championships.

Along with Raheem Sterling, Sancho will be one of Gareth Southgate's primary attacking outlets on the wings for the Three Lions.

And should he have a productive tournament, Borussia Dortmund could feasibly add a few dozen million on to the 19-year-old's price tag.

Liverpool and Manchester United are the two main clubs to have been linked with a mega money swoop for the former Manchester City man.

And former Premier League striker Jan Aage Fjortoft has revealed that one of his sources is convinced that Sancho will end up at Anfield rather than Old Trafford.

“I arrived an hour ago and spoke to two journalists and all we discussed was Sancho," Fjortoft said"

“Where will he end up next year? This very experienced journalist came up to me and said ‘Jan, people in and around the club say he will go to Manchester United’.

“Manchester United is very close to him, they are following him tight and they expect him to play at Manchester United next year.”

Though another journalist who writes for a top German publication told him the youngster will make the move to Liverpool.

“I asked a journalist who follows [Sancho] closely from one of the biggest papers in Germany,” he added.

“I asked if he will go to Manchester United but he said ‘No, no, no, Sancho will go to Liverpool’.

“Manchester United is in for him as well and there are four or five big candidates as well but he thought that because of the friendship between [Jurgen] Klopp and this club they would prefer him to go to Liverpool.

Sancho recently responded to transfer rumours linking him with a return to England, saying he was not listening to the noise.

“I don’t really look at all them things. I just concentrate on my team and take it game by game," he said.

“That’s the most important thing for me now.”
