 Nigerian Agent Demands N19.5 Billion From Chelsea To Pull Off Sancho Deal
Jadon Sancho's Nigerian agent, Emeka Obasi has reportedly demanded 50 million euros (approximately N19.5 billion) from Chelsea as agency commission to pull off the deal taking the Borussia Dortmund sensation to Stamford Bridge in the January transfer window.

Obasi also handles the affairs of Nigeria internationals Alex Iwobi, Ola Aina, Josh Maja and Joe Aribo as well as Arsenal starlets of Nigerian descent Bukayo Saka, Folarin Balogun, Tobi Omole and Malcolm Ebiowei.

Linked with moves to Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund want to collect the highest possible transfer fee for their prized jewel and have placed an asking price of €120 million on the winger, bringing the total fee to €170m if agency commission is included.

Football.London making reference to Transfer Window Podcast, quoted transfer expert Ian McGarry as saying : "I’m reliably informed that they made a formal enquiry to Borussia Dortmund last Thursday with regards to Jadon Sancho.

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

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

Last year, Obasi successfully defended himself when he was investigated by the English Football Association over allegations that he was paid 200,000 pounds for Sancho's transfer to Manchester City from Watford in 2014.
