Chelsea Target Didn’t Relish First Team Challenge – Guardiola
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has taken a swipe at Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho over his exit from the club at the start of last season.
Guardiola told reporters that the England international didn’t want to challenge for a place in the first team.
Jadon Sancho left Manchester City for German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017 after the Germans paid just £8m for him.
Pep Guardiola revealed that the 18-year-old was adamant about his stance to leave the club despite the fact that he was offered a new deal to stay at the Etihad Stadium.
Jadon Sancho has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League with clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea.
His superb form for Borussia Dortmund has not gone unnoticed with the aforementioned English clubs though officials from the German club are adamant that the young English talent will stay at the club beyond this summer.
Jadon Sancho has been touted as a possible replacement for Eden Hazard at Chelsea with the Belgian international likely to leave the Blues for Real Madrid this summer.
Hazard will have just one year left on his Chelsea contract and the Blues will have to decide to sell or not if the former Lille player don’t sign a new deal.
