Top Man Utd target Sancho would ‘prefer transfer to Liverpool’

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho would prefer a move to Liverpool over Man Utd, according to a report in Germany.

Rumours have persisted over the last 18 months that United will try and secure a deal for Sancho, with the Red Devils now looking likely to attempt to sign Sancho this summer.

The Independent claimed on Friday that Dortmund are ‘willing to let’ Sancho leave this summer but only ‘for the right price’ with ‘all sides are confident a deal can be done’.

The newspaper said that the ‘grand caveat’ would be if Man Utd failed to qualify for the Champions League – but with the Red Devils finishing third in the Premier League on Sunday there seems to be little holding a deal back.

There were also contrasting reports on Monday with claiming that Dortmund have rejected a bid from Man Utd, only for British media to dismiss that notion.

And now German publication Kicker claim there is no negotiating the asking price of €120m with Dortmund prepared to keep him unless their demands are met.

Rather surprisingly the report finishes by claiming that Sancho ‘would rather move to Liverpool than to Manchester because of the greater title chances’.
