The BVB star’s recent confessions are a serious blow to Man United, who is understood to have him at the top of their wish list.
Jadon Sancho confesses that he was a “Chelsea fan as a child” and that Frank Lampard used to be the “hero of England” from his childhood.
Sancho, who has made a name for himself as one of Europe’s best young attackers, has been strongly linked with a return to England since last year.
Manchester United are said to be leading the race to sign the 21-year-old Borussia Dortmund forward. The club and the player are reported to have reached an agreement on personal terms and United is now negotiating with Dortmund over their transfer fee.
Meanwhile, the England international has also been linked to a move to Chelsea, with his latest comments indicating that he would rather move to Stamford Bridge rather than Old Trafford.
“My hero from England? I’d probably say Frank Lampard. I was a Chelsea fan when I was a kid, I’m not going to lie ”, admitted the England international, via talkSPORT.
