Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has advised Jadon Sancho against joining Liverpool because he wouldn’t get in the Reds’ starting XI.

The England star is set to leave Dortmund this summer with the Bundesliga giants looking to raise as much as £120million through the winger’s departure.

Manchester United are leading the race for Sancho’s signature but he’s also attracted attention from Chelsea and Liverpool since the turn of the year.

However, though Liverpool are clearly the superior side right now, Ferdinand believes Sancho would be better off at United because he wouldn’t get ahead of Mohamed Salah on the right wing.

‘As good as Jadon Sancho is I don’t think he gets into Liverpool’s team right now,’ Ferdinand said on an Instagram Q&A.

‘Whether he’s a better player than any of them, right now I don’t think he is, potentially I think he could be, but right now the three of them play so well together, how do you break that up?

‘That’s the thing for Liverpool, how do they evolve from where they are now?

‘That’s a big thing for Klopp but it’s a great position to be in. Who wouldn’t want to be in that position?’

United are quietly confident of securing Sancho, regardless of whether they qualify for the Champions League or not.

The Red Devils are ready to hand the winger the coveted no.7 shirt and Ferdinand believes Sancho is ready for the move.

‘I think Sancho goes for over £100 million, in today’s going rate, his potential, you’re buying someone for 10 years at your club,’ said Ferdinand.

‘It’s massive money but I’d take him, I’d risk it, I’d say ‘you’re the guy we’re going to build the team around’.

‘He’s got that X-factor, he’s got skills for days, that’s what people at stadiums want. Sancho is that guy.

‘I think he’s got all the potential to be a humongous superstar.’
