Chelsea FC are confident of beating Manchester United to the signing of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, according to a report in England.

Website Goal is reporting that Chelsea FC are ready to break their transfer record to sign the highly-rated England international either in January or next summer.

The same article states that the Blues are preparing to make a bid should the Court of Arbitration for Sport overturn their two-window transfer ban ahead of the January transfer window.

According to the same report, Chelsea FC are hoping that Sancho’s close relationship with Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi can help their attempts to sign the Dortmund star.

Goal go on to add that Chelsea FC could face competition from Manchester United as well as Premier League leaders Liverpool FC.

The article says that Manchester United are ready to pay £119m for the England teenager in the January transfer window but their poor start to the season could undermine their efforts to land him.

Chelsea FC were 2-1 winners against Aston Villa on Wednesday night thanks to goals from Abraham and Mason Mount.

The Blues have a six-point cushion in the race to secure a Champions League spot.

The west London side signed Christian Pulisic in a £57m deal from Dortmund earlier this year.
