Callum Hudson-Odoi might be doing Chelsea a great service by trying to recruit Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
Both wingers have represented England at youth levels and have grown very close over the years, as Hudson-Odoi revealed.
“Me and Sancho are mad close, we talk every other day, always seeing how each other are and how we’re doing,” the Blues winger said. “We make sure that we’re both doing well, obviously he’s doing amazing and having a great season. We’re always making sure each other is good. Obviously he’s a great player, I love playing with him – he’s a great player to play with.
“For England as well we’ve played all the way through the ages so the link up has always been there. I played against him sometimes in the Youth Cup games or we would play each other for England, the link up has always been there and we’ve always loved playing with each other.
“The way we play with each other we just know where each other is on the pitch every time and we just love to play with each other. I don’t know [if he’ll come]. Of course I would love it if he came to Chelsea. We’ve had a great partnership throughout, the way we play with each other is amazing. If he came the link up will still be there.”
Sancho is heavily tipped to end up at Manchester United next season due to his unsettling asking price of £120m. Chelsea and Liverpool have reportedly shied away from placing a bid after hearing about his value in the transfer market. The 19-year-old is a top prospect who would be an immediate starter at Stamford Bridge but that would mean either Christian Pulisic or Hudson-Odoi would have to sacrifice playing time.
