Transfer News: Chelsea Keen To Sign Jadon Sancho From Borussia Dortmund
The race for Jadon Sancho’s signature keeps on creating headlines, with pretty much every European club have been connected with an enthusiasm for the Borussia Dortmund winger this summer.
Dortmund’s reputed asking price from £100m is expected to cost most clubs out in the post-coronavirus market, but a return to the Premier League looks likely at this stage.
Manchester United are believed to be driving the race for his signature, but reports this week have proposed that Chelsea are thinking about a summer deal so as to raise assets for the 20-year-old.
Sancho apparently favors a moveto London, while Chelsea are in the market for another winger with Pedro and Willian contract due to lapse at the end of this season.
However, Ivisionsport sees what shirt numbers could be accessible to the England international at Stamford Bridge.
Jadon Sancho worn the number seven shirt when he broke into the Dortmund first team, and he has been guaranteed that number at Old Trafford should he join Manchester United.
It is probably not going to be accessible at Stamford Bridge, however, with N’Golo Kante the present occupier; the Frenchman has been connected with a move away from Chelsea this summer, but Frank Lampard says he’s going nowhere.
Jadon Sancho may have to consider other shirt numbers.
Both are right now taken, by Willian and Pedro, however with the two players out of contract this summer almost certain, it’s likely one of them might leave, in spite of reports that Lampard is currently attempting to keep them.
If both were to remain at the club, at that point the odds of them signing Sancho too would fall.
The Dortmund man has worn the two numbers for England, just as for Dortmund’s youth team, and they would reflect his status in the team more precisely than the at present empty numbers ‘6’, ’14’ and ’16’.
