  • The Blues are in the market for a replacement for Christian Pulisic, who is billed to depart Stamford Bridge, and have reportedly identified Sancho as an ideal candidate

Chelsea are reportedly interested in the signing of Manchester United flop Jadon Sancho.

Sancho has failed to leave a mark at Old Trafford since his return to the Premier League from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2021.

Prior to the move, the Englishman had made a name for himself in the German top flight thanks to his incredible spell with Dortmund.

However, he has failed to replicate the same at the Theatre of Dreams, with his dip in form denying him a spot in England's squad participating in the ongoing World Cup in Qatar.

Chelsea interested in Sancho

According to Goal, the arrival of Brazilian star Antony from Ajax earlier in the summer has further complicated Sancho's standing in the Man United set-up.

Despite his struggles at Man United, reports claim Chelsea are eyeing an audacious transfer move for the winger.

Calciomercatoweb reports that the Blues are keen on a move for the England international to replace Christian Pulisic, who has been linked with a move away.

Sancho is contracted at Old Trafford until 2026, having joined the Red Devils on a five-year deal when he arrived.
