Chelsea are reportedly on the verge of hijacking Manchester United move for Borussia Dortmund wonder Jadon Sancho, according to the latest reports from England
The Blues are about to clinch a £120million deal for Sancho amid United’s pressure for the highly-rated winger, as French Lampard looks to bolster his squad in January.
After seeing their transfer ban lifted earlier this month, the London giants have already labeled a few high-profile targets, with the 19-year-old Englishman emerging as their newest objective.
As reported by the Daily Mirror, Lampard has convinced Chelsea to match Sancho’s £120million price tag as he hopes to strengthen his attack this winter.
The Londoners have been looking for a new top-class forward ever since Eden Hazard departed for Real Madrid, as Christian Pulisic failed to deliver consistency.
The former Manchester City youth academy product has been a revelation last season and has confirmed he is not a one-season wonder this term, establishing himself as one of the most promising young forwards in Europe.
He has already gobbled 11 goals and 12 assists in 23 appearances across all competitions so far this season.
Sancho has recently been mistreated by the club, and some sources close to Dortmund have confirmed his desire to switch away from the Bundesliga.
