Chelsea are reportedly set to be ready to battle Red Devils for the transfer of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho. Red Devils are strong contenders for England international, they claim Chelsea are not put off by the forward’s £120m asking price.
Jadon is one of the most exciting young talents in world football at the moment and looks an perfect fit at Stamford Bridge, where Frank Lampard could do with a long-term replacement for Eden Hazard.
Chelsea already have a deal in place for Hakim Ziyech, but could probably do with more options as Willian Borges is nearing the end of his deal and teenager Callum Hudson-Odoi has perhaps not progressed as many would have hoped.
Sancho seems ready to be a generational talent and one who could bolster Chelsea or Man United for many years to come.
Whoever wins this transfer battle would likely be landing a perfect solution to boost their front-line for perhaps as much as the next decade, so it will be intriguing to see who pushes hardest to get the 20-year-old winger in.
The English forward would clearly also provide an important upgrade on the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard at Theatre of Dreams.
