Manchester United are set to ward off competition from Chelsea to sign highy-rated Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, according to reports.
Sancho endured a poor start to the 2020-21 campaign but found his stride soon enough and registered 16 goals and 20 assists in all competitions.
United came close to landing the England international’s services last summer but were put off by Dortmund’s £108m asking price. The Bundesliga club have since lowered Sancho’s valuation, making him an attractive proposition to United and Chelsea. According to the Athletic, Sancho prefers a move to Old Trafford.
Given Chelsea’s wealth of talent on the wing, it is unlikely they will put up too much resistance if Sancho does indeed push for a move to United.
According to reports, Thomas Tuchel will be provided close to 200 million pounds to sign new players as Chelsea look to build on their Champions League triumph last season. The London club are in the market for a new centre-back, central midfielder and a proven goalscorer.
