Former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has advised his team-mate Jadon Sancho against joining Manchester United this summer.

£120million-rated Sancho remains a top target for United this summer and ESPN claim that United are leading the chase for England winger.

Sancho though is also believed to be interesting Liverpool and Chelsea and all three clubs would have been encouraged by Dortmund managing director Carston Cramer’s latest comments.

Cramer has suggested that Dortmund may have to pass up on a huge fee for the 20-year-old, when he said: “The expectations of high fees will go down as well.”

According to the Manchester Evening News, the financial uncertainties surrounding the sport will be no problem for United, who will “press ahead” with their plans to sign Sancho, Jude Bellingham and Jack Grealish.

Dortmund midfielder Can though, who spent four years at Anfield, says Sancho should resist a move to United as there is no ‘appeal’.

“I see no reason to put United above Dortmund,” Can, who joined BVB from Juventus in January, told Sport Bild. “Not from a sporting side and not because of appeal.”

“I’d tell him to stay put and let’s play together forever. Jadon has an extra class not a lot of players possess. I noticed that fairly quickly. He’s enormously important for us.”
