Chelsea join Man Utd in Jadon Sancho transfer pursuit with Borussia Dortmund star set to leave next summer

CHELSEA have reportedly joined Manchester United in the race to sign Jadon Sancho.

The Borussia Dortmund star has been continually linked with a move back to the Premier League.

And according to CBS Soccer podcast Que Golazo, there are TWO possible destinations for the England international.

Chelsea are now keeping an eye on his situation in Germany and could dash United's hopes of landing the 20-year-old.

But both clubs will have to wait until the end of the season – Dortmund are not considering a January sale of the star winger.

Chelsea have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Sancho after the winger admitted he was a Blues fan growing up.

Sancho was born in South London before joining the Man City academy aged seven.

And he confirmed he followed the Stamford Bridge club on his way to stardom.

In an interview with the Telegraph in 2019, when asked if he supported Chelsea, he responded: "Yeah, it's correct. I'm not going to lie."

But he backtracked on his word a year later as speculation of his move to Manchester United heated up.


He later told World Soccer magazine: "I used to look at Ronaldinho on YouTube. That was a big thing for me.

"He used to try things that no-one else would try and that made me like him a lot.

"I didn’t have a team that I supported, though. I just idolised a lot of great players."

Manchester United were heavily speculated with his return to England in the summer but refused to stump up his £108million asking price.

Respected journalist Gabriele Marcotti revealed that a source close to him claimed that Sancho would favour a move back to his roots in the English capital.

He told BTP Media Network: "I've been told Sancho would prefer a move back home, in other words to London where he grew up.

"But equally I'm sure he prefers a move for wherever gives him the best package and long term prospects."
