Jadon Sancho has been linked with a lot of English clubs ever since he broke through at German side Borussia Dortmund. One of which is Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side.

According to Fabrizio Romano though, Manchester United are in contract with Sancho's camp and have agreed personal terms with Sancho. However, no offer has been submitted and Dortmund are after €95million.

Liverpool have been linked with Sancho for a couple of seasons now and his close friendships with England vice-captain Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold have not helped with giving fans hope of a potential transfer.

Speaking on England's feature The Diary Room, Sancho discussed a clip that has been going round of him and Henderson bantering during a training drill.

"It's always a pleasure getting called up for the England squad and linking up with some of my other teammates," Sancho said.

"Honestly, (on Henderson) he is one of the older lads, so I'm one of the younger ones but we get on really well."

"Me and him always have competition on and off the pitch.

"It's constantly like who is better, who's faster. It's a full-time competition on and off the pitch."

As said before, Henderson isn't the only player that Sancho is close with. In an interview, Liverpool right back Trent Alexander-Arnold was asked who his favourite England teammate was and the right back said it was, "The Sancho. Jadon."

Also, in an Instagram Q&A last year, Trent was asked about Sancho potentially joining Liverpool which he responded by saying, "If he came to us, he'd make our team better.

"So I'd be more than happy for him to come. I played with him for England and he's a special, special talent."

Unfortunately it looks like Liverpool wouldn't be able to pull off a transfer this summer for Sancho unless they sold either Sadio Mane or Mohamed Salah.
