Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken about the speculation surrounding long-term Manchester United target Jadon Sancho’s future.
Speaking during a live event with German outlet Bild, Klopp admitted Sancho “would look very good” in a red shirt.
Speculation surrounding the young English winger continues to grow after he was left out of Borussia Dortmund’s final league game against Hoffenheim earlier today. Some fans even suggesting that today could be the last time Sancho is pictured wearing the famous yellow and black of Dortmund.

Addressing the possibility of newly-crowned Champions Liverpool coming in for Sancho, Klopp said: “A red jersey would look very good on Jadon Sancho. But I don’t think such a transfer will take place this summer.
“He is a very interesting player. If he moved to Liverpool, I would be the most surprised of all.”
With the Liverpool boss acknowledging that it is unlikely his side are going to splash the cash, especially after being beaten to world-class striker Timo Werner by Premier League rivals Chelsea, we can only assume by his comments that he means another type of ‘red shirt’.
No, we don’t mean Accrington Stanley.
Manchester United will be following Sancho’s situation over in Germany with pressure mounting on the Reds to strengthen their side in light of their underwhelming performance against Norwich City earlier this afternoon.
talkSPORT reported recently that United are Sancho’s only option out of Dortmund this summer.
