Chelsea jump into battle for Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho

Chelsea have jumped into the battle for Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho.

BILD says Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is lining up a raid on his old Bundesliga club this summer to swoop for the England international.

Club chiefs have confirmed Dortmund have a gentleman's agreement in place with Sancho that will allow him to leave this summer for the right price.

Last year, that fee was around the £100million mark but now, due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on football's finances, it is believed that an offer of £78m will bring Dortmund to the table.

With the Blues ownership looking to back Tuchel in the transfer window this summer, Sancho could well be a marquee signing.
