It's no longer news that Chelsea are actively working on a deal to sign Dortmund's winger Jadon Sancho this January or in the summer.

However, it has been reported that Chelsea are not keen to meet Dortmund's asking price.

Football journalist and transfer specialist Ian McGarry told Reach PLC’s Transfer Window Podcast that Chelsea made official enquiry for Sancho but has been put off by Dortmund's high demand.

“I’m reliably informed that they made a formal enquiry to Borussia Dortmund last Thursday with regards to Jadon Sancho," McGarry said.

“They were quoted, in my view, an astronomical fee of €120million and that didn’t include the €50m commission to the player’s agent.

“They have now stepped away from that and said ‘that’s not going to happen’.”

Chelsea will likely make another move in the summer as they know that a January deal will be difficult.
