Chelsea held negotiations with 20-year-old England international

The London giants are reportedly ‘very interested’ in Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and could be set to go head-to-head with domestic rivals Man United, who have had a long-standing interest in the English forward.

England international has risen to the forefront of European footballing prominence after a brilliant breakthrough campaign with Borussia Dortmund last campaign saw the young attacker contribute to 40 goals in only 44 games, in all tournaments.

Despite his huge impact in the Bundesliga, a summer of speculation suggested the English winger could be on his way to the PL, with the Red Devils frontrunners to secure his services.

A summer of talks and back-and-fourth reports dominated sports headlines, however, surprisingly, Man United were unable to reach an agreement with Borussia Dortmund’s chiefs and a move ultimately fell through.

Forced to remain in Germany for at least another campaign, there are once again mounting speculation that Jadon could soon move on.

BVB’s apparent acceptance that their star attacker will leave Germany has sparked speculation that another English side on the transfer’s radar is Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea. Blues are ‘very interested’ in the 20-year-old Englishman and could be set to take on the Red Devils in a summer battle for his signature.
