Sancho is not better than Salah
Liverpool does not need to sign Jadon Sancho as “he’s not a better player than Mohamed Salah. “Still, it would be nice to beat Manchester United under the signature of England international, Jamie Redknapp said. The homecoming was dedicated to the highly-rated 20-year-old who is currently playing for the Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund. United are spearheading the pursuit for his services, with the Red Devils spending most of their summer transfer window trying to close a deal. They were left empty-handed when the deadline passed, with considerable time and energy wasted chasing down a blind alley. Interest from Old Trafford is expected to continue, but competition is likely to arise in any future recruitment scramble.
Redknapp: Jadon is an amazing talent
It could be that Liverpool joins the chase, with Sancho having been mooted as a potential addition for the reigning Premier League champions. Still, the Reds are already well-equipped for attacking talent at this time. Redknapp expects to keep Jurgen Klopp out of any bidding war, but the former Reds midfielder admits it would be nice to get one over on arch-rivals if United were drawn into a much-sought-after forward. “Look, Jadon Sancho is an amazing talent, and Liverpool would take him,” Redknapp told reporters. “But now, if you play him on the right side, he’s not a better player than Mohamed Salah. He’s also not a better player than Sadio Mane. He makes goals, he brings something completely different to what Liverpool are trying to do, and if you want to keep improving and getting better, then, of course, you would like him to be in your team.
“You can also stop him going to Manchester United, even better. But right now, if he came to Anfield, would he be in the team? I don’t think so. Liverpool have seen Mane and Salah underling their value in a Merseyside derby with Everton. The former recorded the fastest Premier League goal against arch-rivals Everton, while the latter recorded his 100th effort for the club in what was his 159th appearance.
