The Englishman is the envy of plenty of top-level clubs in Europe.
Reported Manchester United target Jadon Sancho could end up at Liverpool, suggests Peter Crouch.
The 19-year-old forward scored his first international goals on Tuesday night, netting twice in England’s 5-3 win over Kosovo at Saint Mary’s.
The Borussia Dortmund star was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United over the summer after just two seasons in the Bundesliga after leaving Manchester City’s Academy. Even Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc confirmed he has met with the Red Devils to discuss Sancho, but the England starlet remained in Germany.
But just how long Dortmund can hang on to the London-born player, who is already rated in the €100 million bracket, remains to be seen. Whatever happens this season, Manchester United will not be the only club interested in signing Jadon Sancho next summer, as Peter Crouch reckons rivals Liverpool would be a better bet for the winger.
“All being well, he will return to the Premier League,” Crouch told the Daily Mail.
“Clubs will be queuing up to sign him and while there has been noise about him joining Manchester United, I wonder whether Liverpool might actually be the perfect fit. It would not surprise me to see him at Anfield.”
Sancho is part of a new generation of English footballers who appear to have been empowered by Southgate’s leadership of the national team. He took the Three Lions to the World Cup semi-finals last year and appears to have no qualms giving youth a chance, exciting fans and pundits alike.
