Steve McManaman isn't convinced Jadon Sancho moving to Liverpool would benefit either the player nor the club.
Dortmund youngster Sancho has long been linked with a move to Anfield after taking the Bundesliga by storm following his switch from Manchester City.
He'd set the Reds back in excess of £60million, but has age on his side, and is widely regarded to be one of England's biggest prospects.
Former Liverpool midfielder McManaman has heaped praise on Sancho, labelling him an "extremely bright prospect".
But the 47-year-old isn't convinced a transfer to Anfield would be the best career move for him nor Liverpool.
"I think he'd prefer to go somewhere where he will start week-in and week-out. I don't think there's any problem with that," McManaman told HorseRacing.net.
"The other thing is the cost implications. How much is he going to cost?
"No doubt, he's an extremely bright prospect, he's doing really well in Dortmund, he plays regularly and he's a star there.
"Whether Liverpool would go for him now is something that I don't know and if he was available, he'd command big money and I presume that there's a number of clubs that would go for him.
"Jadon could cost £60m/£75m and that's a lot of money for somebody that young even though he looks a fantastic prospect.
"It's a big outlay for a player and in all honesty Liverpool's young players are all doing well themselves and Jurgen Klopp seems to want to give them a go."
