Man United in the battle to sign 23-year-old English left-back


Red Devils have reportedly entered the transfer race for Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell, with both Chelsea and Man City credited with interest already. England international has had a fine campaign this year, playing 33 games for the Foxes and in turn, has emerged as a crucial figure for Brendan Rodgers in their bid to qualify for the UCL.

With 11 caps for England to his name already as well, there is little doubt that Ben has a big future ahead of him for club and country, and it seems there is many speculations over his future at the King Power Stadium.

Red Devils are now ready to rival Chelsea and Man City for the left-back, and it’s suggested that any such swoop will cost one of the PL giants nearly £60m while the report also claims that Man United may well be leading the race for his signature.

It’s a questionable move though to spend such a big fee to address an area of the squad that arguably doesn’t need to be bolstered any further with Luke Shaw already at Man United and playing a prominent role for the Norwegian boss while teenager Brandon Williams has also stepped in this year and has played 29 games.

In turn, that will perhaps raise eyebrows over the touted Ben move, or it could lead to question marks being raised over Shaw’s future at Old Trafford as the pair surely can’t co-exist at Theatre of Dreams given both will believe that they should be the starting left-back at the club.
