Chelsea express interest in Manchester United captain Harry Maguire.
This is one transfer story I didn’t expect to be writing this summer, but the Daily Mail claims Chelsea recently made a shock enquiry about Harry Maguire’s availability.
It gets even better.
The deal could see United target Christian Pulisic move in the opposition direction.
None of our readers need to be told that Maguire isn’t the most popular figure among United fans. It is understood that a move for Wesley Fofana remains the Blues’ priority target at centre-back, but their interest in the England centre-back is an intriguing development.
Maguire is lose his place in XI against Liverpool
The report adds that Maguire could lose his place in the starting line-up to face Liverpool on Monday night. That means Raphael Varane could start alongside Lisandro Martinez.
United will be looking to bounce back from two defeats after a shocking start to the new season.
Let us know in the comments section if you think Chelsea’s interest in Maguire is genuine. It could be a smokescreen to force Leicester City into the sale of Fofana.
