Sancho ‘discount’ & Man United fixture latest – Liverpool FC Roundup – Liverpool FC


Speculation continues on the new date for Liverpool’s trip to Man United, while Jadon Sancho remains firmly in the picture regarding the rumor.

Reds cite ‘Corona discount’ for Sancho

Can Liverpool tempt Sancho at Anfield without the Champions League football carrot? It may be unlikely.

But it didn’t stop PHOTO to claim the Reds are in contention for the England winger, after Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc told ARD they had a “The Gentleman’s Agreement“To allow him to leave this summer.

This would be done under “certain conditions”, and by designating Liverpool as an interested party with Chelsea and Man United, PHOTO suggests that it would be available for a “Corona discount”.

The listed price is € 100million (£ 87million) which would break the Reds’ all-time transfer record – but if he can be convinced it may be worth concluding, even financially viable.

Liverpool need a renovation in attack this summer, and Sancho, 21, would be the perfect addition.

Still no new date for Man United vs Liverpool

As it stands, there is no reorganized date confirmed for Man United vs Liverpool, after protests forced their postponement on Sunday.

Discussions are underway between the two clubs, the Premier League and Greater Manchester Police, and it is likely that space will need to be freed up in the high-level schedule.

The game most likely to be moved is Liverpool’s away clash with West Brom, currently scheduled for May 16, but no announcement has yet been made due to a number of complications.

It’s an extremely important game for both teams, with the Reds looking to keep their push into the top four and United still having low hopes of beating Man City to the title.

Stupid rumor of the day

Spanish bullshit specialists Fichajes have claimed Dortmund are interested in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, possibly replacing Sancho himself.

Dortmund are smart about their transfer business, and Oxlade-Chamberlain could well explode if the opportunity presented itself at another club – but it all seems a bit far-fetched …
