Why Sancho at Chelsea would be the ideal deal!

Football pundit Paul Merson believes Chelsea would be an ideal match for Jadon Sancho at this stage of his career. 

Sancho is on the radar of every big club in Europe right now but Merson thinks it is Chelsea who would want to make the biggest impression in the transfer market this summer. 

The Blues have already snapped up Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and now will be looking at either Sancho or Havertz. 

“I don’t think Chelsea’s spending will stop (with Ziyech and Werner),” Merson said.

“They obviously still want Jadon Sancho, and if they can’t get him they will probably try for Kai Havertz.

“Either one of them is going to cost close to £100m. But that kind of transfer pays for itself. Chelsea could get five good years out of Sancho and still get a big sell-on.

“You’ve got every chance of getting your money back with a player like Sancho. And if Abramovich starts coming to matches again, he will want to be entertained. He won’t care about paying £100m for a Sancho if it helps them play good football.

“Signing Werner is a big statement. But signing Sancho would be an even bigger one.”
