Jadon Sancho “snubbing Chelsea for Manchester United” moves the Blues for Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho


Chelsea’s decision to recruit Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona could be due to Jadon Sancho who “snubbed” them to sign for Manchester United.

The prodigy of Borussia Dortmund is expected to be one of the most sought after players in Europe this summer with a multitude of clubs eager to sign it.

Liverpool were also credited with interest in the 20-year-old winger last month, while Real Madrid and Barcelona also courted the youngster.

But in recent days, a move to Old Trafford seems to be envisaged for the ex-starlet of Man City, his current club of Dortmund demanding approximately 105 million pounds sterling for his services.

And this development seems to have seen Chelsea turn its attention to former Liverpool midfielder Coutinho, who should not complete his permanent transfer to the current side of the loan, Bayern Munich, and who is apparently unwanted by Barcelona.

The Blues have already made their first signing of the summer and have announced that they will land Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech on July 1.

And with Sancho now on the verge of joining Man United, Spanish sports publication believes Frank Lampard may choose to hire Coutinho to add experience to a young and talented team.

Marcus Rashford is a player who will be delighted if the Red Devils finish the swoop for Sancho.

The United native, and international teammate of the Dortmund star, has already declared his admiration for the player.

And Rashford, 22, can’t wait to see his exciting skills at Old Trafford.

“It would be nice, Sancho is a great player and he’s like a new generation player,” he said in a recent Instagram video.

“It’s really exciting to see him become the player he becomes. I hope we can all play together, that would be nice.

“He’s playing the headlines, he’s creative and imaginative, these are the things you need to be world class. “

Meanwhile, Red Devils legend Rio Ferdinand, who won six Old Trafford titles from 2002 to 2014, urged the club to strike a summer deal for Sancho.

He said, “I want Jadon to go to a team where he will play, improve and get trophies.

“He’s related to United, Chelsea, PSG, but I think United is the place to go because he’s a partisan. “

With the current climate, many may shy away from the huge transfer fees, but Ferdinand thinks it’s worth it.

He added, “He is flying and is one of the best young children in the world right now. He is a player with huge potential and he will win over £ 100 million.

“You have bought someone from your club for 10 years, it is huge money but I would take it and risk it. “
