According to German media outlet Bild, Chelsea could be dealt a blow in our pursuit of Jadon Sancho this summer by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Chelsea are keen on signing the 19-year-old England international in the summer but Chelsea’s budget for the transfer window will depend on whether the Blues receive the full amount of TV revenue for this season.

It is believed if the coronavirus continues to cause delays to football, the Blues may struggle to meet Borussia Dortmund’s asking price for Sancho, believed to be around £118million.

The Premier League has been suspended since March 9 due to the coronavirus outbreak and the earliest the league could resume is April 30.

Sancho is Chelsea’s top target for the summer transfer window after an impressive season with Borussia Dortmund, scoring 17 goals and making 19 assists in his 35 games to date.
