Real Madrid have entered the scene. It was only a matter of time. The best always get linked with the biggest, and Jadon Sancho, at 20 years of age, is one of the best (young) players in the world.
According to Spanish newspaper AS, Real Madrid are eyeing the Borussia Dortmund star, and are targeting a big push for next summer. Real, like most teams, are not expecting to make any big moves this summer due to the economic climate. Plus, BVB might be a bit more willing to relent on their €110m asking price by then, especially if Sancho continues to staunchly refuse any new contract extensions.
Over the weekend, Sancho notched his first ever Bundesliga hat-trick as Dortmund beat Paderborn 6-1. He now has 17 goals and 17 assists across 27 league games (20+20 in all competitions). His numbers have piqued the interest of top clubs all over Europe, with Chelsea and Manchester United linked heavily all year.
Real Madrid entering that arena makes it all the more imperative that Chelsea make a move now if we do actually want Sancho — and make him one of our two marquee signings this summer.
