Chelsea to sign Jadon Sancho?

Chelsea are reportedly planning to recoup funds from player sales in order to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

Sancho has been tipped to move to the Premier League in recent months and Manchester United have been mentioned as the favourites to sign him.

Still, the Blues are keeping a close watch on his situation and Marca claims that they are planning to devise a plan to raise enough money to sign the attacker.

The west London side are set to receive a fee of around £48m from Atletico Madrid for Alvaro Morata's permanent exit (mandatory buy clause) and reports claim that the club could also part ways with Tiemoue Bakayoko.

In this case, they could recoup around £78m and it is suggested that could be sufficient to meet Dortmund's initial valuation for Sancho without performance-based add-ons.

The Blues have already a deal to sign Hakim Ziyech from Ajax but they are lining up another winger signing with both Pedro and Willian due to leave the club when their contracts expire during the summer.
