Hakim Ziyech and Jadon Sancho’s first season together at Chelsea predicted by Football Manager

It’s looking very likely that the future of Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Jadon Sancho will be one of the stories of the 2020 summer transfer window, with the England international heavily linked with a move back to the Premier League.

Since leaving Manchester City, Sancho has developed into one of the best young players in the world at Dortmund, showcasing his incredible talent on a weekly basis, whilst also proving crazy numbers in terms of goals and assists, with this year proving to be one of his best yet.

The 19-year-old has already scored 12 goals and registered 13 assists in just 19 Bundesliga appearances, making him one of the most productive players in world football.

So, what if Chelsea won the race for Sancho’s signature this summer?
