Reigning European champions Liverpool have been tipped to sign highly rated Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho ahead of arch-rivals Manchester United on one condition.
Liverpool and Manchester United are the top two clubs in success terms in English football and they enjoy a rivalry that has lasted for several decades.
During the latest episode of The Agenda, journalist Caoimhe O’Neill tipped Liverpool to beat their rivals to the signing of Jadon Sancho this summer before adding that it would only be possible on one condition.
According to her, Liverpool will have to sell one of their front three to accommodate the arrival of England international Jadon Sancho.
Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino are members of the famed Liverpool front trio and they have all been instrumental to their successes in the last eight months.

- Liverpool have got a replacement for Virgil Van Dijk
Liverpool have won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup titles within that time and the three front players were instrumental to those achievements.
The signing of a quality player like Jadon Sancho is tempting especially with age on his side. The 19-year-old has been in devastating form for his German team in the last two years.
He has 16 goals and 18 assists in 31 games in all competitions. His attacking stats can’t be matched by any of the Liverpool front three but their synergy can’t be overemphasized and that has been key to the aforementioned Liverpool achievements.
Manchester United wanted to sign Jadon Sancho last summer but Borussia Dortmund were keen on keeping him for this season. The teenage attacker could leave this summer and a transfer fee of £100m plus would be required to secure his signing.
Apart from Liverpool and Manchester United, Chelsea are also in the running to sign him as they try to sign a replacement for Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard.
