Following a break down in relationship, Dortmund star Jadon Sancho is expected to be one of the top names to make a switch when the window opens in the winter.
Jadon Sancho emerged a promising star following a productive season with Borussia Dortmund last year. However, it’s been a little rough for the 19-year-old, who seems to have been on the wrong side of the club, for disciplinary reasons.
Liverpool and Manchester United are believed to among the clubs who could be interested in sealing a move for the England international if the opportunity presents itself.
However, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has played down any rumors linking Jadon Sancho to Anfield. Whilst also admitting the Merseyside reds could be set to spend in January.
“He’s a very good player,” Klopp said of Jadon Sancho. “I have no clue where these kinds of things [the rumors] are coming from, but it cannot come from us because we never speak about it.
“If we would be involved, nobody would know about it apart from a person who wouldn’t speak about it. There’s nothing to say. I know how it sounds, but I cannot change that. There’s nothing to say about it, which can mean there’s absolutely nothing to say about it.”
There is one issue, however, according to Jurgen Klopp. Borussia Dortmund are demanding a massive figure near €100m in exchange for Jadon Sancho. A figure which would see Liverpool shatter their previous club record and Klopp believes that’s “100 percent an issue”.
Klopp has a good relationship with Borussia Dortmund since leaving in 2015. Surely this will play a huge part in any potential deal in the future, with the manager already signaling there could be business in the coming transfer window, although no particular name has been mentioned.
“We don’t speak about it, but we are pretty much always ready to do something if it will help us,” Klopp said.
“If not, then not. We will see. I think the summer window is more difficult because of the different moments when it closes in Europe.
“That makes it really difficult. We will see how that will be in the future. The summer window only hurts the English clubs.”
