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.

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.
