Chelsea should make move and sign up £100m winger Sancho after Germans send transfer message
Chelsea should make a move to try and sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho next summer, with reports the Germans may consider selling the winger.
Now we all know that Chelsea were unable to go out and splash the cash on some big named players as they were banned from acquiring any players for at least two transfer windows, and although they did appeal the ban, they only managed to tie down a permanent deal for Mateo Kovacic and bring in Christian Pulisic.
News boss Frank Lampard has a massive job on his hands trying to get the best out of the experienced players, while also giving the younger generation more of a chance at Stamford Bridge, as he could not improve the squad.
But with the sales of a number of first-team players, the Blues made a massive £130 million in sales this summer and that is to be reinvested into the club next summer, as Lampard will reportedly get around £200 million to spend on new players.
And we have suggested that the Chelsea boss goes out and buys a number of top-class signings, and Sancho should be high up on the shopping list.
The 19-year-old England international, who left Manchester City to join the Bundesliga outfit in 2017, emerged as a top summer target for Chelsea, but Dortmund refused to sell and Chelsea were unable to make a firm offer as they were suspended from doing any deals.
However, his long-term future will lie away from Dortmund, though – something the club accepts – and Dortmund chief Watzke was clear that he would have to discuss Sancho’s future again come the end of the 2019/20 campaign
‘There aren’t many 19-year-olds with such a potential,’ Watzke told Ruhr Nachrichten.
‘He is also not a player from the region or one who would have any connection to it.
‘When you have a player like Jadon Sancho, you must reassess the situation every single year. Everything else would not be honest. ‘If a foreign player is not convinced that the club is right for him at the exact time, it just does not make any sense.’
The lad is a creative force and was one of the top assist players in Europe last season, and considering Chelsea are seeking an immediate ready-made replacement for Eden Hazard, could Sancho be the answer to their problems?
