Chelsea considered a move for Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho during the summer transfer window, according to Daily Mail.
The west London giants wanted to strengthen their attack before the deadline, and Sancho was one of the top names on their wishlist.
However, they turned their attention to signing Manchester City’s Cole Palmer instead. The hierarchy had doubts over Sancho’s mindset.
Sancho has been a fringe player for United under Erik ten Hag, having failed to replicate his performances from his Dortmund days.
He has struggled to adapt to the intensity of the Premier League. His lack of pace has been one of the reasons behind his huge downfall.
Meanwhile, Sancho could face disciplinary action after the international break following his outburst over Ten Hag’s comments on Sunday.
Ten Hag explained that the forward was left out of the Arsenal game due to his poor attitude in training, but Sancho clearly dismissed the story.
Sancho said that those comments were completely false and he was being made a scapegoat. The forward could be suspended for his statement.
