Chelsea and Manchester United are in a battle to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho this summer.

The 20 year old winger has been in sensational form this season, netting 17 goals and providing 19 assists in all competitions.

Chelsea might have the edge over Manchester United in the race for Sancho after the 20 year old winger named Lampard and Didier Drogba as his idols.

“It was all about learning skills and expressing myself,” Sancho told The Independent late last year.

“I like adapting that to a real game. It makes defending harder because opponents don’t think you have those sort of skills.

“It gives you an advantage against some players and luckily enough it’s been working out for me.”

He added: “Ronaldinho was the main guy I used to watch on YouTube. But I liked Frank Lampard quite a lot and Didier Drogba when they were playing for Chelsea.

“They were the three players I looked up to.”
