While the Red Devils have been tipped to sign the England international, former Liverpool full-back Jason McAteer feels the Reds should go all out for the winger.

“If they have the money then the player I would go for is Jadon Sancho,” McAteer told the Racing Post.

“He would fit ideally into the system and next season would be the ideal time to blood him, unless there are injuries to the forward line and he was thrown in earlier than that.

“Maybe they could offer some players in part exchange to Dortmund as part of the deal because the biggest difficulty we have at present is knowing what the transfer market is going to look like.

“Liverpool have a gap for a fourth forward option and Sancho would definitely fit the bill.

“He could put Salah and Mane under pressure to perform. They have been brilliant but they haven’t really had anybody pushing them.

“We haven’t seen much of Takumi Minamino yet while Curtis Jones and Rhian Brewster are promising, but you need a fourth striker.

“You only need look at that great Manchester United side which had Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke, Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“Timo Werner would have been a great fit too but the competition for places may have put him off and tipped the balance in Chelsea’s favour.

“You need players who can cope with that situation. But a season to settle at Anfield would do Sancho the world of good and then he could really kick on.”
