Here are your Chelsea morning headlines for Wednesday 1 April.
Blues step up Sancho interest
Liverpool have reportedly dropped out of the race to sign Jadon Sancho, leaving Chelsea and Manchester United as the winger’s two possible destinations in the Premier League.
Sancho supported the Blues as a boy and the west Londoners hope to use that to their advantage.
According to the Daily Mirror , Chelsea have opened a channel of communication to the player, who has lit up the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund over the last two seasons.

However, both Chelsea and United have baulked at Dortmund’s asking price of £100m.
The German side are thought to be keen to spark a bidding war between the two Premier League outfits, a situation Chelsea are keen to avoid.
United hold a similar view and would be willing to walk away from a deal unless Dortmund lower their demands. That could potentially leave Chelsea as the only show in town.
Fabregas rates Mourinho above Guardiola
Former Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas has named Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger as the two best managers he’s worked for.
The Spaniard won a Premier League title as part of Mourinho’s Chelsea side in 2014/15, his first season back in English football after a three-year spell at Barcelona.
Fabregas was coached by Pep Guardiola for one of his seasons at the Camp Nou, but the current Manchester City boss was not named as one of the midfielder’s best ever managers.
“I had the best in the world, so I cannot complain,” Fabregas said during a Q&A session on Instagram.
He was then pushed for a more concrete answer on his favourite bosses, ultimately settling on “Wenger and Mourinho.”
Fabregas also played under Guus Hiddink, Antonio Conte and Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge.
