Man United and Chelsea aim Jadon Sancho
Manchester United leads Chelsea in pursuit of Dortmund Borussia star Jadon Sancho. The former Manchester City winger is a priority for both Frank Lampard and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. But, as you know, United is currently in front of the 20-year-old lineup. However, given the fact that the transfer window is presently taking off due to the suspension of leagues due to Covid-19. There is potential for the situation to change, and there is an understanding that no agreement has yet been reached with the club to sell Sancho. It is reported that Dortmund is already planning a life without an English star, who still sticks tightly about his long-term future. At the beginning of this month, he was started on a potential return to the Premier League but refused to be involved in a transfer back to England.
At Dortmund, they prefer Jadon to stay with them
It is clear that Dortmund wants €130 million (£115 million/$143 million) for Sancho. Their CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke warned that they would not be ready to accept the offer at a cut price for the winger. “I can clearly say that despite the existential crisis, even the richest clubs should not believe that they can make a deal with Dortmund.”Even before the outbreak of coronavirus, we said that we prefer Jadon to stay with us. However, in the end, you always need to respect what the player wants.”Boyhood Chelsea fan Sancho, who is friends with Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi. He left Manchester City in 2017 for Germany and has been successful in the Bundesliga. Still, disciplinary issues at the beginning of the year led to assumptions that the attacker may be on his way.
United were interested when Jose Mourinho was in charge back in 2017, but Sancho decided to move to Germany instead. Man City has the right to comply with any application accepted by Dortmund as a winger. But there is no clause in its contract that would prevent it from joining United. Both Chelsea and United strive to strengthen their attack line whenever the transfer window opens again.
