Would Sancho get in Liverpool's XI? Man United legend Ferdinand gives his verdict

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand believes Jadon Sancho would not get in Liverpool's starting XI. 

Sancho has been linked with a move to Liverpool and  Chelsea but Ferdinand has advised the youngster against signing for the Reds. The 20-year-old is set for a summer exit and Dortmund could raise as much as £120million through the winger’s departure. 

Ferdinand believes the Reds are a superior side and Sancho would be better off he heads to United as he wouldn't start ahead of star Mohamed Salah on the right-wing. 

On an Instagram Q&A, the United legend said, "As good as Jadon Sancho is I don’t think he gets into Liverpool’s team right now."

"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?"

The Red Devils are quietly confident of securing Sancho's services, regardless of whether they qualify for the Champions League or not.
