Yes please! Chelsea told to open cheque-book and sign Bundesliga superstar
Owen Hargreaves has told Chelsea to get the cheque-book out and sign the outstanding Jadon Sancho.
Sancho, who has 12 goals and 13 assists this season, is one of the most in-demand players across Europe and there were many reports in the January window suggesting that we were keen to make a move to sign the winger then.
However, Dortmund did not want to sell one of their most prized assets and it seemed that Sancho was keen to stay put until at least the summer, meaning that we went the whole January transfer window without making any meaningful transfer deals.
But with the likes of, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich all credited with interest in the prodigious wide-man, Dortmund could demand in excess of £100million for Sancho in the summer, who became the first teenager ever to score 25 goals in Germany’s top flight recently.
And Hargreaves hopes Frank Lampard will be given the funds to complete the nine-figure transfer, telling the Daily Express website: “Sancho’s performance was like that of Neymar in its early years.
“Completely detached. He could not be defended. Get your cheque books out
“Someone has to commit this boy because he is very special.
“He always sounds the alarm. He is in the right place at the right time. It may be that he is only 19, but he is a merciless finisher.
“The players they have are still young, but they will soon be the best in the world.”
