Brace yourselves, guys, for the summer of Jadon Sancho.
Sky Sports reported on Wednesday that the 19-year-old will leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer and it didn’t take long for the stories linking him to various Premier League clubs to emerge.
Then there’s Chelsea, who are in the hunt to sign the boyhood Blues supporter.
It’s going to be an epic transfer saga with a possible auction breaking out.
Sancho will command a fee that surpasses the £100 million mark and it’ll be fascinating to see who gets him.
We’ve had a go at predicting how the three Premier League teams will look if they win the race to sign him.
We haven’t included any other possible signings that teams might make except for Hakim Ziyech at Chelsea, which appears to be a done deal.
On the assumption that Odion Ighalo won’t score 20 goals and scupper everything, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won’t have a problem inserting Sancho into his starting XI.
The winger will play on the right wing with Marcus Rashford on the left and Anthony Martial through the middle.
With Daniel James and Mason Greenwood on the bench, that’s an exciting, young attacking group.
(4-3-3) - De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Williams; Fernandes, Pogba, Fred; Sancho, Martial, Rashford.
This was tricky.
How do you get Sancho into a team that already boasts arguably the strongest attacking trio in Europe?
It’s doable, but Jurgen Klopp will have to change his 4-3-3 system or drop one of his current stars.
Changing to a 4-2-3-1 formation would, however, allow him to keep Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane together and include Sancho as well.
(4-2-3-1) - Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Keita; Sancho, Firmino, Mane; Salah.
Frank Lampard could have a new-look attack next season, with Ziyech and Sancho coming in.
It means no room for Willian, who has been one of Chelsea’s best performers this season but is axed for the younger options.
(4-2-3-1) - Kepa; James, Tomori, Rudiger, Azpilicueta; Jorginho, Kante; Sancho, Ziyech, Hudson-Odoi; Abraham.
Sancho has 12 goals and 13 assists in the Bundesliga this season.
Whichever team gets him will be getting a precocious talent.News Now - Sport News
