Blues fans to welcome new addition? as Chelsea ‘are confident’ of signing winger Jadon Sancho for £100 million
Reports have claimed Chelsea are confident of signing Manchester United target Jadon Sancho.
The 19-year-old England international, who left Manchester City to join the Bundesliga outfit in 2017, emerged as a top summer target for United, but Dortmund refused to sell and United were not prepared to pay such a big amount for the youngster.
The lad is a creative force and was one of the top assist players in Europe last season, and considering United are in need of adding some much needed excitement, goals and creativity on the wings, the lad is growing into their perfect signing.
Chelsea are expected to learn imminently from the Court of Arbitration for Sport about their appeal against their transfer ban, and if they are successful, it would allow them to make a move for players in the January transfer window.
And according TO GOAL, Sancho is high among their targets.
The report says Chelsea believe they can make the England international the most expensive signing in their history.
Sancho is one of the most gifted young players in the game right now and will eventually become one of the best wingers in the game, especially if he continues to develop at the pace that he currently is.
United are a side that need a player like Sancho in their squad as they are lacking that spark in the attacking half of the pitch, while Chelsea are seeking an immediate replacement for Willian, who is reportedly on his way out of the club after failing to agree a new contract at the club.
However, Chelsea will have to wait until the end of the season to complete a transfer deal for Sancho, as recent reports have suggested that the winger has decided that moving in the winter window would not do him any good, and moving from Dortmund at the end of the season is a much more likely scenario.
So it will be interesting to see if Chelsea do beat United to the signature of Sancho, as he will be a great signing for both player.
