With players gradually returning to club training from the World Cup, talk is now turning to the upcoming January transfer window. 

There has already been plenty of speculation surrounding Premier League clubs and players, with a number of big money moves being touted ahead of the window.

Manchester United are likely to be busy as they look to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, and Chelsea are another side that will be active in the market as new owner Todd Boehly looks to bolster Graham Potter’s squad.

Now, it is being reported that The Blues and The Red Devils could be set to complete sensational a swap deal.

According to Football365 via Calciomercato, Christian Pulisic could be set for Old Trafford, while Jadon Sancho may move in the opposite direction.

Pulisic, 24, has struggled to maintain a regular starting spot for The Blues since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in 2019, and it appears increasingly likely that he will leave the club.

United are believed to be interested in the American, who impressed for his nation at the World Cup.

Sancho has struggled for game time this season

The winger is expected to be available during the upcoming window, and United could move for the player that has started just three league games this season.

If Chelsea do offload him, they could then look to Sancho to replace him.

Sancho played alongside Pulisic in Dortmund, but has also struggled since moving to United.

The 22-year-old has scored just eight goals in 52 matches for The Red Devils, and is currently training alone in The Netherlands while his teammates are in Spain.

Sancho missed out on a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the World Cup, despite having been involved at Euro 2020 last year.

Blues owner Boehly is said to be confident that Chelsea could help the player to resurrect his career and could therefore make a move for him once Pulisic has departed.

Former Manchester City youth player Sancho has only scored twice in the Premier League this term, although his first team chances may have improved slightly following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo last month.
