According to a report from the Daily Mail, Liverpool, Man City and Man United are monitoring Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho but the Reds are put off by the potential size of his fee and the Englishman’s disciplinary record away from the pitch.
Could Liverpool sign Sancho?
Yes, get the deal done
No, far too much money
Going on to star in the Bundesliga, it’s fair to say Sancho’s price tag has risen considerably since then – with Dortmund apparently wanting £100 million for his services.
Given Jurgen Klopp and the club’s stance on big money moves this summer, it’s unlikely that Fenway Sports Group would sanction such a transfer – resulting in many Liverpool fans going on to lambaste the report.
Despite the notion he could be a fantastic signing, the unlikelihood of this rumour has prompted a fierce response.
Here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
Load of rubbish. Couldn’t afford Werner so we deffo can’t afford Sancho. We’re not signing anyone before the new season starts.

Does it mean you guys are short of stories? Why lying to our faces, couldn’t afford half price talk more of this…

You really think we are going to say we can’t afford Werner and then spend 80-100 million on Sancho?

We can’t even afford to pay for someone who is valued at half his price?!
