Liverpool have left the door open for both Manchester United and Chelsea after bowing out of the race to sign Jadon Sancho, according to reports.
Borussia Dortmund star Sancho is a man in hot demand from a host of Premier League giants after shining in the Bundesliga, and this summer is set to ignite a bidding war for his signature.
But according to the Mirror, Liverpool are not monitoring the 20-year-old’s situation as it stands, leaving just United and Chelsea in pursuit of Sancho.

However, both clubs are unwilling to stump up the eye-watering £100million price tag that Dortmund are currently asking for.
United have reportedly been in touch with Sancho’s agent but are reluctant to submit any formal approach, especially due to the uncertainty of the transfer window because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Meanwhile, reports also claim Chelsea have began their pursuit but have made clear they will not be able to fork out anywhere near the £100m asking price.
The report also states that Liverpool have never actively been in the market for the winger – claiming they would only consider a move if one of their attacking trio left.

Dortmund recently admitted that it was out of their hands whether Sancho leaves during the summer transfer window but did warn clubs they will not be able to sign him on the cheap.
‘Even before the coronavirus outbreak, we said that we prefer that Jadon stays with us,’ Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke told Bild. ‘At the end of the day, however, you always have to respect what the player wants.
‘I can clearly say that even the very rich clubs, despite the existential crisis, do not have to believe that they can go on a bargain tour with us. We don’t have to sell anyone below value.’
