Chelsea fans have been growing increasingly excited over the prospect of signing Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho. The anticipation may now go up a notch for Blues fans. Reports suggest that Chelsea are set to make a club-record bid for the Englishman.
The Daily Mail reports that the Blues will make a £100m bid for the wide man in an attempt to secure his services. The 19-year-old has attracted interest from all around Europe in recent times, and it seems that Chelsea are ready to make a move.
Sancho is close friends with some current Chelsea players, including Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham. They will be hoping that the close connections he has at the club will give them an edge in the chase for one of the most wanted players in Europe.
He has scored seven goals and also provided seven assists in just 11 games for BVB this season. These returns provide mouth-watering content for any Chelsea fans. The thought of him linking up with the likes of Abraham, Kovacic, and Pulisic is certainly an exciting one.
Dortmund manager, Lucien Favre, has fallen out with Sancho on a number of occasions this season. After dropping him for returning late after England duty, the winger was also substituted just 36 minutes into the club’s recent clash with Bayern Munich.
The current Chelsea side would certainly be taken to a new level if Sancho were to come in. It would be a serious statement of intent from those at Stamford Bridge.
