Former Premier League goalkeeper Shaka Hislop thinks Jadon Sancho is in a “pretty good” position because of reported interest from Manchester United and Liverpool.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made the England international his top target and talks are ongoing behind the scenes to push through a move.
However, earlier this week it came to light that the 20-year-old may prefer a move to Liverpool.
Ex-West Ham keeper thinks it will be very flattering for Sancho to have both clubs monitoring his situation.
“It is a pretty good choice to have to make if you’re a footballer,” Hislop told ESPN FC.
“Here I am having to choose between Manchester United and Liverpool, I think that’s what every player wants.
“I understand the predicament but Liverpool are so settled and successful with what they do, anybody coming in at the very least it will take them some time on the sidelines working their way into becoming a regular starter.
“Whether Jadon Sancho sees that as being part of his role, I’m not so sure.
“On the other side you will have other people saying Manchester United are a club on the up since Bruno Fernandes arrived.
“Manchester United have a lot of money to spend in terms of competing with those on the top level.
“You can either spend a year or two on the sidelines trying to work your way into the Liverpool team or you can wait a year or two being in the United starting XI while they add to what they have.
“It is a tough choice but I think the better fit for Sancho right now is at Manchester United.”
Meanwhile, fellow pundit Steve Nicol thinks Sancho would have an issue if he linked up with Jurgen Klopp’s side.
He added: “The only problem he has is where is he going to play?
“Do you really turn around to Mohamed Salah and say ‘I’m sorry but this guy is starting over you?’ Or Mane on the other side. It is one of those two, it certainly isn’t down the middle.
“Fantastic for Liverpool yes, would it be great for Sancho? I’m not so sure.
“He has to go and play somewhere and if he goes to Liverpool I’m not so sure he is starting every single game.”
