Some football insiders think Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho could end up joining Chelsea.

That is according to a report from The Athletic.

Jadon Sancho’s been a popular topic in the media after a very public falling out with Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag. As a result, the 23-year-old hasn’t played since mid-August.

It’s no surprise to hear that the English winger is now linked with a move away from Old Trafford. So, could Chelsea be a realistic next destination for him?

Chelsea a possible option
The Athletic has claimed on Thursday morning that Man United are looking towards the January transfer window to find Sancho a fresh move. His exit could be on a permanent basis or even a loan one midway through the campaign.

It is understood that United put a £65million price tag on the attacker back in the summer. Now, his most likely move is a switch to one of the cash-rich clubs in Saudi Arabia.

The report does add that some in the football industry believe that Sancho’s connections with London makes Chelsea a possible option, too. Born in the English capital, could we see him return home?

Journalist Fabrizio Romano previously reported on YouTube that Sancho’s name was on the table during discussions between Chelsea and Man United during the summer. There was never any serious advancements over a potential deal, though.

Jadon Sancho is a no from us
Even before you delve deeper into the off-field problems with Sancho, Chelsea don’t need a player of his profile right now.

We’re immediately put off by the latest saga around him, but the basics are that the Blues don’t need another wide player.

Mauricio Pochettino is currently trying to working out his best attack as he tries different combinations. Chelsea can already call upon the likes of Raheem Sterling, Mykhailo Mudryk, Noni Madueke or Cole Palmer in the wide positions.

We’ll be fascinated to see who fancies taking a chance on Sancho, someone who’s fallen off after showing exceptional quality in Borussia Dortmund colours.
