The Jadon Sancho alternative some Blues fans want to sign

The Bundesliga returned to action on Saturday afternoon.

And for most Chelsea fans that would have meant taking another look at Jadon Sancho.

Sancho has long been a target for the Blues in the summer transfer window, although they will face stiff competition from the likes of Manchester United for his signature.

That is, if either side can stump up the £100million-plus that Borussia Dortmund will demand for their star forward.

Sancho has shone in his two seasons in the Dortmund first team and having just turned 20 has the world at his feet.

But, after two months of inactivity, Sancho was left on the bench for Dortmund’s first game back after the coronavirus pandemic called a halt to the season, leaving Chelsea fans disappointed.

But they soon found another Dortmund player to focus their attentions on -Raphael  Guerreiro.

The Portuguese ace played a starring role in Dortmund’s 4-0 demolition of their close rivals Schalke, scoring twice, once after Markus Schubert had made a hash of a clearance and he was played in, before scoring the third goal with a smart finish following a lovely team move.

And while the Chelsea supporters are not throwing the towel in over a move for Sancho just yet – he came on for the final 12 minutes – Guerreiro could satisfy some supporters’ transfer wishes.

Guerreiro has previously been linked with a move to Liverpool in the Premier League.

He is valued at £25.2million by Transfermarkt and has a contract at the Westfalonstadion until 2023.
