Brother of Arsenal striker Balogun: I urged Sancho to choose Chelsea

The brother of Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun admits urging Jadon Sancho to choose Chelsea over Manchester United last summer.

United signed Sancho from Borussia Dortmund before Euro 2020. The England international, several years after first being identified as a target for United, completed his switch to Old Trafford towards the end of July, joining the club in a £72.9million deal from Borussia Dortmund.

However, Royce Balogun, who is the older brother of Arsenal youngster Folarin, has admitted that he tried to convince Sancho to snub a move to Old Trafford.

"I actually told him (Sancho), don't go to Manchester United because he was a Chelsea fan, Royce Balogun told What The Footie Pod.

"I would have absolutely loved to see him at Chelsea."
