Jadon Sancho has his admirers but Glen Johnson feels the former Man City winger would select Liverpool over Manchester United if a suitable bid comes from the Reds. The former Liverpool player also feels it would be though to turn the Merseyside side down at this moment.
The 20-year-old forward has turned into among the very sought after talents in European soccer which has sparked discussion of a return to the Premier League for its Manchester City academy grad, using a range of sides from England prepared to bring the kid home.
United seem to be heading the queue, together with the Red Devils creating lots of speculation in regards to a potential $122 million raid on the positions of a Bundesliga heavyweight.
Liverpool are, nevertheless, also regarded as in the combination and Johnson considers Jurgen Klopp ought to be seeking to add Sancho into an attacking harvest that currently contains Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
The former Reds right-back told Betdaq: “Sancho has been connected with nearly all of Europe’s best clubs, but from my standpoint, he will certainly find it rather tough to turn down Liverpool whenever they come knocking.”
“I understand just what it means to wear the top and to get any young English footballer playing at Anfield it’s exactly what you dream about. They have got one of their greatest directors in the world in Jurgen Klopp, they are European champions and will win the Premier League, therefore it would be quite hard not to be severely tempted if they had been following Sancho’s trademark.
“If he wishes to perform in England, no team can provide him the achievement that Liverpool are now enjoying which will definitely be a huge sway towards him moving there.
“If he had been to visit a club like Manchester United, then there could be so much pressure for him to execute when he walked through the doorway and for somebody so young that has a great deal of responsibility to carry on.
“He will be expected to enhance the group immediately which simply does not occur, whereas in Liverpool he would be under so much less stress to do. They would not have to place him to the group weekly and rather they would make him get his stripes. I believe that could really grow him more than simply sticking him from the get-go.
“We all know that Liverpool have a proven front three at the moment together with Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, and Sadio Mane, however as we understand things change tremendously fast in soccer and who knows where they will be in a couple of decades?”
Johnson further added, “I am not saying they will proceed during this time, however, you will never know what may happen and if nothing else, even including another top-class participant to Liverpool’s attacking positions might really spur them to perform much better.”
“A better Firmino, Salah, and Mane along with a more seasoned Sancho are a fairly frightening thought for opposition defences.”
