United Join Chelsea And Liverpool In Battle For 80M Rated Sancho Alternative

Manchester United have joined the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool in tracking Villarreal’s Samuel Chukwueze, according to 90min.com.

The Nigerian international could well be seen as a potential alternative to Jadon Sancho, with the pacey winger having an £80m release clause, which would make him slightly cheaper than the Borussia Dortmund star.

United will have a whole host of Premier League teams competing with them for Chukwueze’s signature. In addition to Chelsea and Liverpool, Wolves, Leicester and Everton are also keeping tabs on the 21-year-old.


This season, the winger has scored just one goal and provided two assists in 10 appearances for Villarreal. He generally plays off the right-wing, cutting in onto his stronger left foot to get shots away on goal.

In contrast, Sancho is very much a conventional right-winger, and his record this campaign is slightly better than Chukwueze, having bagged two goals and contributed four assists in eight games for Dortmund.
