The news that broke confirming that the Court of Arbitration for Sport had ended Chelsea’s ban from buying players, a transfer window early, has, inevitably, provided the media with the opportunity to flood the speculation market with rumours.
One such rumour, with Frank Lampard, supposedly, having £150 million available to spend, relates to Chelsea smashing their current transfer record to bring an exciting young talent to Stamford Bridge.
According to The Daily Mail, the Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is Chelsea’s top transfer target with the Blues willing to pay as much as £100 million for the 19-year-old.
Sancho, a former Manchester City youngster, has been linked with a host of other clubs including but not limited to Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Madrid.
This season he’s scored 7 goals and provided 7 assists in 12 Bundesliga games as his remarkable rise to fame continues.
But with Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi perfectly able to play wide roles, I’m questioning the wisdom of Chelsea contemplating paying such a huge amount for Sancho, if the speculation does indeed have solid foundations.
But what are your views on the speculation, would you welcome Sancho to Stamford Bridge?
