Jadon Sancho to Chelsea latest: Dortmund’s £102m transfer decision, truth about release clause

How much money will Frank Lampard spend during the January transfer window?

After a summer without splashing the cash due to a transfer embargo handed down by FIFA, Lampard has been given a reported £150million warchest to spend in January.

That FIFA ban was due to last two windows, but the Court of Arbitration for Sport cut it in half, meaning Chelsea can sign new players this month.

There has been little action so far in the January transfer window, but things are sure to heat up soon.

One of the players to be heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge has been Jadon Sancho, but the Borussia Dortmund star would take a hefty chunk of that transfer kitty all by himself.

Here’s what we know about his future so far.

Dortmund issues

He may be one of the star men for Dortmund, but Sancho has had his issues at the club this season.

Sancho was substituted in Dortmund’s recent 4-0 defeat at Bayern Munich, with Lucien Favre admitting the winger’s performance was “not good enough”.

After returning late from Three Lions duty last month, Sancho was also dropped and fined , and publicly criticised by sporting director Michael Zorc and as well as Favre.

According to The Athletic , the sequence of events left the teenager feeling ‘humiliated’, ‘scapegoated’ and ‘unprotected’, which led to increased speculation over his future.

However, he has been in superb form since returning to the team.

Nevertheless, allowing the 19-year-old to leave would almost certainly be of financial reward for the Bundesliga outfit, and while a January switch is unlikely, it is understood that the club could be willing to allow him leave in the summer.
