Danny Murphy has urged Jadon Sancho to snub any move to Manchester United this summer with other clubs set to join a transfer battle next summer.
Borussia Dortmund star Sancho has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford though the Bundesliga side appear unlikely to sell the England forward this summer.
That could set up a potential transfer battle next summer with Dortmund wanting at least £108m for teenager Sancho this year.
And former Liverpool midfielder Murphy believes it would be better for Sancho’s career if he waits and sees what other offers he potentially gets.
“United are an attractive proposition, one of the biggest clubs in the world with a young and exciting team, but Sancho won’t be short of suitors in his career and he’ll be aware that in a year’s time, when football finances are a bit steadier, he may have a choice that also includes Liverpool, his ‘local’ team Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid,” Murphy wrote for the Daily Mail.
“It’s possible he may prefer to wait and weigh up his options after the Euros next summer rather than rocking the boat now by telling Dortmund he wants to leave.

“If that’s the case and United are fighting against an inflated fee and a player considering other options, they have a problem – and that’s without factoring in the agent fees that usually accompany a deal like this.
“Sancho is young and publicly respectful but his career to date indicates a player who knows his own mind and will have a say in his future. If his heart really is set on joining United, there are ways of letting all relevant parties aware.
“Whatever is beneficial for your career, you are going to try to make it happen. If United know that, I’d pay Dortmund the asking price even if I admire the principle of not being dictated to. Sancho’s value isn’t going to diminish.
“However, judging by what I’ve seen so far there is no rebellion from Sancho, which makes me sense he’s not desperate to move to United.”
