Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has urged Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to bring out his chequebook and sign the 19 year old winger.

However, Chelsea transfer target Jadon Sancho has been compared to Brazilian star Neymar after his impressive performance in Borussia Dortmund’s 2-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.

Hargreaves told BT Sport: “That performance from Sancho was like Neymar in his prime. Off the cuff. He was unplayable.

“Get your cheque books out. Somebody go and sign that kid because he is special.”

Former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas also praised Sancho.

Jenas added: “He showed maturity beyond his years. He’s a spearhead for them with what he brings, his lack of respect for the opposition.

“You always felt like he was going to do something tonight. That tells me he thinks he is the best player on the pitch.”
