Jurgen Klopp says a red shirt would look ‘very good’ on Jadon Sancho but admits he does not see the Borussia Dortmund winger signing for Liverpool this summer.
Manchester United have made Sancho one of their priority targets for the summer transfer window but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side also face competition from Chelsea and the newly crowned Premier League champions.
Dortmund are understood to be open to selling Sancho this summer but the Bundesliga club are demanding in excess of £100 million for the England international.
That asking price is expected to put off several clubs from completing a deal for Sancho this summer and Klopp has suggested that he expects the 20-year-old to spend another season with Dortmund.
When asked about Liverpool potentially signing Sancho this summer, Klopp told Bild: ‘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.’
Klopp also dismissed the suggestion that Liverpool will need to overhaul their squad following their Premier League title win.
‘This team doesn’t need a break,’ said the Liverpool manager.
‘I cannot promise that we will dominate football now, nor do I know if it is time to talk about major upheavals, but I know that our goal is to keep the team’s tribe together.
‘The boys are currently in a great football age.’
