Here are your morning headlines, Chelsea fans, for Saturday, April 4.
Blues have advantage in Sancho pursuit
Jadon Sancho is one of Europe’s most-wanted players. The 20-year-old has established himself as a bonafide star at Borussia Dortmund and is being chased by a host of top clubs.
Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid, and many more have been linked with a move for the England international when the current campaign ends and BVB CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has confirmed the German club will not stand in Sancho’s way.
“Even before the coronavirus outbreak, we said that we prefer that Jadon stays with us,” he told Bild earlier this week.

“At the end of the day, however, you always have to respect what the player wants. But I’ll say clearly that even the very rich clubs shouldn’t believe they can come here to snap up bargains.”
It will not be easy for Chelsea to secure Sancho’s signing but, according to BonusCodeBets , they are in pole position to sign the boyhood Blues fan.

Sancho isn’t the only big-name signing Chelsea are trying to make with the Blues in talks with Philippe Coutinho, according to Spanish publication Sport
The Brazilian is currently on a season-long loan at Bayern Munich from Barcelona but the Bavarian giants are not expected to take up their £105million option to buy when the campaign comes to an end.
Barcelona are keen to sell the former Liverpool star and could accept a bid between £52m and £70m. That has piqued the interest of Chelsea who have opened talks with Coutinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian, with whom the Blues have previously done business.
