'I feel sick': Some Liverpool fans react as rival club submit offer for 'generational talent'
Manchester United have reportedly submitted their first official bid for Borussia Dortmund winger and Liverpool target Jadon Sancho.
According to Bild, the Red Devils have finally pulled the trigger and submitted an offer for the England international. United have been linked with Sancho for well over a year.
Hailed as a ‘generational talent’ by pundit Owen Hargreaves via Goal, Liverpool were also keen on Sancho alongside the likes of Bayern Munich and Chelsea according to Bild. However, it appears rivals United will be the ones to sign the English attacker.
Indeed, Sancho is part of the 26-man squad that will represent the Three Lions at this summer’s Euros. Last season, the winger hit 16 goals and registered 20 assists in all competitions for Dortmund.
Liverpool supporters saw the attacker as a potential replacement for Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane should either leave the club this summer. Instead, Sancho looks to finally be off to United.
Here’s what some fans had to say about the transfer update on Twitter…
#LFC @LFC So UTD are finishing the last details on the arrival of Sancho and we’ve released a PR piece on Origi scholarship because he’s staying and we’re hopeful Adrian will sign the contract we’ve offered him!! What an absolute shambles from top to bottom it’s just surreal😳— Mark (@Marklfc10Mark) June 10, 2021
I feel sick at the thought of Kane going to Man City and Sancho going to Man Utd! #lfc— Kopite Jamesy (@JamesMcL_JFT96) June 10, 2021
Remember when all the news outlets last season even sky sports said themselves if United didn’t get Sancho last season it would be more difficult cos Liverpool and Chelsea were going to try get him this window… that aged well😭😭😭— Mo 🇵🇰 (@VadaVanDjik) June 10, 2021

Liverpool have already been busy in the summer market. The Reds have already signed Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.
