He has seen his £8m transfer value rise by more than ten times that as Europe’s giants scout the 18-year-old.

SunSport exclusively revealed last week that United were lining up a £70m bid for the ex-Man City starlet.

But Premier League title chasing Liverpool are also interested – despite boss Jurgen Klopp admitting his struggles to sign him.

The German chief told the Mirror: “Buying English players is a smart idea because we would never have a chance to get Sancho.

“We are not blind – we saw him, we liked him and then we think ‘Can we get him?’ No. English clubs don’t sell to other English clubs.

“I don’t know exactly what the reason is for that but they don’t do it. Now they can go to Germany which is a wonderful league.”

Sancho has already been capped three times by England boss Gareth Southgate since his Dortmund breakthrough.


He has attracted interest from a number of clubs including Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham this campaign.

The youngster decided to quit City after failing to break into Pep Guardiola’s first-team squad.

Sancho also felt his opportunities in the future would be limited, and wanted to challenge himself abroad.
