According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea are in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho next summer.
“I think he’s moving next summer,” the Sky Italy journalist told Que Golazo Podcast.
“Yes, as we said, it’s so difficult in January, we’ve said that so many times about Jadon Sancho, because Borussia Dortmund are not huge to sell their players in the middle of a season, of a complicated season as they are having, so they need their stars to be back at a top level, and they don’t want to sell Jadon Sancho in January.
“But next summer I expect Jadon Sancho to leave the club. Yes, he was really one step away from leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer, Manchester United were really close to signing him for €100m, but then Borussia Dortmund changed their plans, but Manchester United had the agreement with the player and his agents, so everything was ready, and then the deal collapsed at the last stages.
“That’s why I say next summer, I expect Jadon Sancho to leave the club and be back in the Premier League. We have to understand if Manchester United will arrive with €120m (£109m), if they will be ready this time to sign the player or if they’ll take the risk of other clubs joining the race.
“I will say like Liverpool, Chelsea, and a lot of clubs are scouting the situation of Jadon Sancho, so at this point the race is open.”
