Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has warned Marcus Rashford to stay away from Manchester United transfer target Jadon Sancho.
Chelsea star Tammy Abraham has jokingly told Marcus Rashford to “stay away” from Jadon Sancho as the Blues and Manchester United prepare to battle it out in the summer transfer window to sign the Borussia Dortmund winger.
Abraham’s comments came after Rashford sent Sancho a birthday message after he turned 20 on March 25.
Rashford posted a message on his Instagram account that said: “Happy birthday bro!! @sanchooo10 Enjoy your day, indoors!” Along with a picture of the pair training while on international duty with England.
United will hope Sancho’s close relationship with Rashford could be a crucial factor in their attempts to sign the youngster from Dortmund in the summer.
However, Abraham wasted little time in replying to Rashford’s post.
The Chelsea forward replied: “Stay away from my Jadon” along with a laughing emoji.
And while Abraham’s message has since been deleted, it could be construed that the Blues striker is making sure Sancho is aware the Chelsea striker would also welcome him to Stamford Bridge too.
