In what will come as a major transfer blow to Manchester United, their league rivals, Chelsea babe joined them in the chase to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. Sancho is a long-term transfer target for Manchester United and the Red Devils have set it as a priority to complete the English winger’s transfer this summer, but they seem to not be the only club interested.
The Blues have reportedly now joined the list of the player’s possible suitors, even though they are also interested in signing his teammate Erling Haaland. Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is said to be a huge admirer of both players and he was said to be monitoring the situation of Haaland at the club with the aim of making a bid for the Norwegian striker.

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has warned Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang that he could find himself in the same situation as Mesut Ozil did before he left the club if the Gabonese international don’t improve his performances for his club.
Carragher sounded a note of warning to Aubameyang on Sky Sports News. He was highly critical of the Arsenal captain for his poor display in the Liverpool game at the weekend. Aubameyang was largely anonymous and had to go off in the second half as the Gunners were thrashed 3-0 at home by Liverpool. Continue reading AUBAMEYANG COULD BE ANOTHER OZIL – CARRAGHER
The reports making the rounds in the German media currently all point to the fact that Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund have finally dropped the asking price for star forward Jadon Sancho, making it easier for long-term admirers Manchester United to sign him in the summer. United came so close to signing the England international winger last summer but were unable to do so after Dortmund adamantly refused to drop their £120 million asking price for their prized asset.
Although there was little or no noise about any transfer saga featuring United, Sancho, and Dortmund in January, it was a dragged saga and lasted for the entire summer. Red Devils director Ed Woodward tabled up to three offers for Sancho in the summer but none of them met the asking price of Dortmund so no deal was agreed and the player stayed out in Germany as a result.

Last summer, Manchester United were told by the club’s manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær to secure the signing of Borussia Dortmund’s English star Jadon Sancho. Solksjær demanded the completion of the transfer in a bid to continue his rebuild at the club as they continued to have a go at winning the Premier League title since they last inched it back in 2013.
The board, however, failed to secure the signing after the Bundesliga giants insisted that they were not going to down their asking price of €120 million – a fee United were adamantly reluctant to pay. United director Ed Woodward suggested that it was not a wise decision to pay such a huge sum of money on a player who may not hit the ground running immediately after his arrival.

The 31-year-old was sidelined after the coronavirus shutdown last season and manager Mikel Arteta cited that he was being left out of the team due to internal reasons.
