Manchester United legend Gary Neville has warned Chelsea transfer target Jadon Sancho isn’t one of the best players in the world.
Neville believes it’s too early to call Jadon Sancho one of the world’s top stars
The Blues are keen on signing the England international and Borussia Dortmund’s valuation of the winger is around £100 million.
“To be honest, Jadon Sancho in this moment of time… we get carried away,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“I think we’ve got an amazing group of young English players. But we have to consider the other players that exist, Brazilian players, Argentine players, German players, Belgium players, we are not the only country in the world.
“That’s how it was as an England player and an England coach, ‘we have a golden generation’. You say golden generation and obviously it was Becks, Stevie, Frank, Rooney, but then Brazil had Rivaldo, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo, what’s that… platinum?
“You say we have a golden generation but you forget these other countries have world stars. It’s like, ‘hang on a second’. Argentina have Aguero, Higuain, Messi, Di Maria, how good are they compared to Jadon Sancho? Jadon Sancho is nowhere near these players.
“Let’s be clear, Jadon Sancho is a talent, but we can’t start putting him in the category with world stars who are winning European cups and World Cups regularly, season in season out.”
Sancho has made a huge impact this season, scoring 17 goals and providing 19 assists in 35 appearances.
