Chelsea have been handed a boost in the race for Jadon Sancho as Pep Guardiola ruled out Manchester City moving for the England ace.

There has been so much transfer speculation in the media about the future of Sancho that fans do not know what to believe, and whether or not our club will actually make a transfer move.

But there had been some speculation in the media which has suggested that Manchester City may seek to try and bring him back to the club in the transfer window, as they seek a replacement for Leroy Sane, who is heading to Bayern Munich.

Sancho spent time in City’s academy before leaving for Borussia Dortmund three years ago, and a return to the Etihad has been mooted, But Guardiola cannot see that coming to pass.

“No, no, no,” HE said on TalkSPORT. “He decided to leave. Why should he decide to come back?

“We wanted him to stay like Eric Garcia and Phil [Foden] but he decided like Leroy now and myself, when I decided to move to other countries to be a manager, to move.

“When he decided to move to Dortmund it’s not because he is going to decide to come back one year later. It would make no sense. He didn’t want to be here, so that is why I think he doesn’t want to come back here.”

We would love Sancho and the news that City will make a move will mean that there will be one less club to fight off in order to get the young man signed up.
