Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is reportedly a huge fan of the 21 year old England international.

Manchester United were extremely close to signing Sancho last summer but missed Borussia Dortmund’s deadline to complete a move before they returned for pre-season training.

United are in for the England winger again this summer but they face competition from Chelsea, who are preparing a big-money offer for him.

Sancho arrived at Dortmund in the summer of August 2017 from Manchester City, just months after Tuchel was sacked by the Bundesliga giants.

This season, Sancho has 37 goal contributions (16 goals and 21 assists) in 37 games in all competitions.

He helped Borussia Dortmund win the German Cup last week, scoring a brace as Borussia Dortmund beat RB Leipzig 4-1 in the final.
