Chelsea held negotiations with €120m-rated Bundesliga attacker

Chelsea and Man United may reportedly have been given a significant transfer boost in their rumoured pursuit of Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho. The 19-year-old star has established himself as one of Europe’s most exciting prospects during his time in Germany, and it makes sense that Borussia might now struggle to keep hold of him.

Speculation has been rife for some time now that Jadon could leave Bundesliga giants, with Borussia Dortmund long known for tending to cash in on their star players when bigger clubs come calling.

Blues and Red Devils have been tipped to battle it out for Sancho in the summer, according to a recent report from the Sun, and it now seems like the German club are chasing a replacement.

Borussia Dortmund are eyeing up a move for Emmanuel Dennis, with the report suggesting he could be being eyed due to doubts over England international’s future. It stays to be seen if the English winger will move to the Premier League this summer, but it does seem only a matter of time.

And if it’s true that Bundesliga giants are already searching for replacements, Man United and Chelsea will surely view that as good news. Jadon would be ideal for boosting the Red Devils after their difficult campaign, with the club struggling in front-line for some time now after a string of failed signings.

London club also need to spend big after being under a transfer ban when they lost Eden Hazard last summer, with Jadon Sancho an ideal long-term replacement for the Belgian superstar.
