JUST after Arsene Wenger revealed his attempt to sign Dortmund star another English coach exposes his interest. Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Liverpool wanted to sign Jadon Sancho before he joined Borussia Dortmund but Manchester City were unwilling to sell to another English club.
Sancho has seen his reputation grow exponentially in Germany after failing to make a single senior appearance for City.
Liverpool are the latest club to have revealed they held an interest in Sancho before his move to the Bundesliga after Klopp admitted the Merseysiders wanted the winger.
And the German is unsure why English clubs usually refuse to do business together for fear of strengthening a rival.“Buying English players is a smart idea because we would never have a chance to get Sancho,” Klopp said, according to the Daily Mail.
“We are not blind – we saw him, we liked him and then we think ‘Can we get him?’ No. Because English clubs don’t sell to other English clubs.
“I don’t know exactly what the reason is for that but they don’t do it. Now they can go to Germany which is a wonderful league. I don’t see German football in a bad situation.”
