Chelsea are not interested in a move for Jadon Sancho at this stage with Manchester United ‘looking the most likely option’ for him.
Sancho’s impressive showing for Borussia Dortmund this season have not gone unnoticed with the winger bagging 14 goals and providing 14 assists this term.
The likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool have been linked with a move for the England international.
Reports in the past have suggested Sancho would be open to a move to Chelsea because it’s where he grew up.
But with the Blues already announcing Hakim Ziyech’s impending arrival from Ajax in the summer, journalist David Ornstein feels Sancho is more likely to head to Old Trafford this summer than the capital.

“Chelsea’s an interesting one because he’s from London, he’s got friends there and it would seem to be a bit of a glove fit,” he told The Warm Down .

“Whether that’s about money, a similar United Champions League uncertainty or whether it’s around a more important actor that United don’t necessarily have and that’s a saturation of wing players already.
“Ziyech’s coming in the summer, Callum Hudson-Odoi (too) so for some reason that’s not emerged quite like the other interest.

“I don’t think that the intense negotiations are taking place just yet but they’ll start to hot up now that the January transfer window (is closed).”
