There are few more exciting prospects in world football right now than Jadon Sancho, who is set to have a huge present and future in the game. Moving to Borussia Dortmund in 2018 for £7m from Manchester City, the German club are set to receive a huge profit on their investment if/when they choose to sell Sancho, who continues to receive a number of admiring glances from across Europe, in particular, from English clubs.
Still only 20-years-old, Sancho is believed to be at the top of Manchester United’s list of targets this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bolster his attacking options.
Here, we will take a closer look at the clubs that are currently chasing Sancho and assess the odds given to them by the bookies of getting his signature.

Manchester United – 4/6
Manchester United are the odds-on favourites to sign Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer, having been tracking his progress for a number of months. Already having Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, the feeling has been for some time that United need to sign a right sided player to complete their starting trio in attack and Sancho fits the profile of player that the club have gone after in recent transfer windows.
A front three of Sancho, Rashford and Martial being fed by Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes will certainly get United fans excited and the 20-year-old will only continue to get better.
He currently has 17 goals and 16 assists in just 24 starts for Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season, with a total of 20 goals and 18 assists in all competitions. This could well be the signature, along with Bruno Fernandes, that pushes United to the next level.
Chelsea – 5/1
Chelsea have also been linked with Jadon Sancho for some time, having become realistic contenders for him in the wake of their transfer ban being lifted. Sancho grew up a Chelsea fan and Frank Lampard’s open admission to wanting to strengthen his attacking options only further boosted rumours that he could be on his way to Stamford Bridge.
However, Chelsea’s odds of landing the England international have drifted slightly over recent weeks following the Blues’ seemingly greater interest in other attacking options. The London club have already signed Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and are also thought to be stepping up their interest in German internationals Kai Havertz and Timo Werner.
Liverpool – 15/2
Jurgen Klopp is a known admirer of Sancho and Liverpool will be starting to have one eye on adding competition in the wide areas in the next year or so with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah both now 28.
However, Liverpool’s odds of landing Sancho have also drifted over recent weeks, particularly once news broke that they would not be following up their interest in RB Leipzig forward Werner after refusing to match his £52m release clause, allowing Chelsea to step up their own pursuit of the German forward.
Any deal for Sancho would likely cost double that of Werner, likely leaving Liverpool well out of the loop.
