‘Very interesting player’: Jurgen Klopp’s response when asked about reported Liverpool target

Ahead of the upcoming transfer market, it has been reported that Dortmund have increased Sancho's transfer fee from $124 million to $146 million.

"I can not promise we will dominate football now, nor do I know if it is time to talk about major upheavals".

"If Jadon comes up to us and says I absolutely want to leave - which has not been the case so far - and a team wants to pay what we want, then we will discuss it", he said. "The boys are now at a great age for football", said Klopp in an interview with The Bild.

Despite leading Liverpool to their first league title in 30 years, Klopp does not feel he is the best coach in the world.

'The three months of lockdown and for how long we'll have to play in front of empty stands, if we'll play in the Champions League next season.

Jurgen Klopp said that he doesn't think Jadon Sancho will move away from Borussia Dortmund this summer, though he added that Sancho would look good in a Liverpool jersey.

While they regard Man Utd as Sancho's only option for a move, the final decision is expected to depend on the Red Devils' Champions League qualifications for the 2020-21 campaign as the 20-year-old midfielder has clearly expressed that he is looking to join a club that can offer him Champions League play. But I don't think such a transfer will take place this summer.

SportBILD have previously suggested that Dortmund are seeking a fee of £117m for the player amid the continued interest, a figure which Watzke believes no club will be prepared to match amid the current climate. I told him that the title wouldn't have been possible without him because the Bundesliga was a great example. "It was a liberation for us in England".
