Chelsea have reportedly set their sight on signing long-term Man United target and Borussia Dortmund star, Jadon Sancho.
United have been tracking the English playmaker for the longest time, but now face competition from rivals Chelsea who are desperate to land him to bolster their squad further.
Metro UK reports Dortmund had initially set £108m as the asking price for the 21-year-old, but have since lowered their valuation to around £80m.
The publication added the German club’s decision to lower the asking price has seen prospective buyers including Chelsea troop in.
Current Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is understood to be a huge admirer of the winger, with The Sun adding the Stamford Bridge dwellers are keen to test Dortmund with an £80m bid for the youngster.
Sancho is thought to have grown up as a Chelsea fan, a prospect that would work in the favour of the west London club.
However, they will have to contend with competition from United who do not seem to have cooled their pursuit for the ex-Man City star.
Edinson Cavani’s contract extension at Old Trafford by a further year mean the Red Devils can shelve their plans to sign a striker and focus on landing Sancho.
At United, the Dortmund star is likely to face competition from Mason Greenwood for a starting role on the left.
The likes of Dan James, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and Paul Pogba have often been fielded in the position but faltered.
Earlier, . had reported how Jadon Sancho continued to justify why he is being wanted by top Premier League sides following his recent performance for Dortmund.
The England international became the youngest player to reach 50 assists in the Bundesliga in less than 100 games.
Dortmund were 3-0 winners over Arminia Bielefeld and Sancho provided Mahmoud Dahoud’s assist for their team’s first goal.
