Manchester United exploring move for Chelsea midfield ace

The clickbait merchants are getting desperate and the transfer window hasn’t opened yet.

According to 90min, Manchester United have ‘joined’ Liverpool and Man City in a pursuit to sign Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

Apparently United are ‘exploring’ the possibility of signing the Croatia international, 28, as a possible alternative to Frenkie de Jong.

Kovacic currently earns £150k per week at Chelsea and will be looking for a higher salary package if he is to leave Stamford Bridge anytime soon.

United are set to sign a central midfielder in the summer, so we can expect a flurry of names to do the rounds.

Kovacic is just the latest.
