Yeah but if you look at it from his POV and the suposed statement he made about wanting to play for us over United,there was no part of his statement that mentioned he wanted to join a team to roll up his sleeves and be a train pusher,he wanted to win titles and had a better chance at LFC atm.Thats removing money from the table and the main reason to move club,he'll still be paid silly money for a 20 year old at Dortmund aswell.Not only would United pay him more than we would but we'd both pay more than Dortmund will be. So you want him to turn down millions in extra earnings for next season by staying in Dortmund so that he can accept to earn millions less per year by joining us instead of them because we MIGHT try to sign him next year. But then again we might not so he might have just washed millions of pounds down the drain for nothing and United might still be the best move he has available to him. We can come across quite arrogant on this. United and Liverpool are both massive clubs with prestigious histories that its a real feather in your cap to have played for one. From the outside looking in it may come across that United are a good, young squad, starting to go places under a talented young manager. Personally disagree and it was Leicester having such a late season collapse that allowed United to sneak in and grasp Europe. But they certainly won't seem that bad a choice. And Klopp said he wanted people who wanted to help get the train moving as a sign they had the right character, well which club needs that now? If he's going there he's going to go roll his sleeves up and help them try get their train moving. A bad character would have been someone willing to go to PSG collect mega money and half arse their way to league title after league title.
Klopp has already made a move for him when he left Man City,so he knows he's wanted by us,if he's had any contact with Klopp or seen previous deals with players that broke down because of cash 1st attitude,then he'll know Klopp wants players who are focused on playing,the money will soon follow,agreed it won't be the amount United will pay but according to Sancho,thats not the issue.
He'd also know that all clubs finances are pretty much fucked atm and anyone paying huge sums are doing it with a hope that everything will be ok but could also risk fucking themselves.Next season,he'll know his price will come down being in his last year and he'll get more options of clubs to play for.
By moving to United now thats basically saying,my agent and i want the money.United finished 33 points behind us,let me say that again,33 POINTS BEHIND US,yeah they may improve on that next season but you can't honestly say they are our main rivals for the title next season.
Like i said previously,if he joins United after saying he wanted us for trophy wining reasons,then it's a money based decision more than anything,we've seen plenty of players say and do exactly the same thing over the years,let them go,we've got to where we are now off the back of it,Champions of England,Champions of Europe,Super Champions of Europe and Champions of the World,let him count his money,while we count our trophies.
