Manchester United ‘move ahead’ of Chelsea and Man City in £60m transfer race for Leicester ace Ben Chilwell
July. 11, 2020
Manchester United have reportedly moved ahead of Manchester City and Chelsea in the race to sign Ben Chilwell.
According to The Sun , the Red Devils are now front-runners to capture the England left-back, who has made 27 appearances for Leicester this season.
Chilwell has been a long-term target of Chelsea’s , with various reports suggesting he is one of Frank Lampard’s prime targets for the upcoming transfer window.
However, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to add a new left-back to his squad and is said to be ready to make a £60million offer to prise Chilwell to Old Trafford this summer.
The Red Devils are on a sensational run of form right now, having gone 17 matches unbeaten in all competitions
The breakthrough of Mason Greenwood and superb form of Bruno Fernandes has clicked Solskjaer’s attack into gear, with the club now mounting a strong challenge for the top four.
Tony Cascarino pays tribute to the great Jack Charlton - “He could walk on water in Ireland, and he loved it!
Former Blues defender Ashley Cole, however, believes Chilwell would be a better fit at Stamford Bridge.
“Similar to [Timo] Werner, he fits the ethos – he is young, he’s hungry, he’s explosive and athletic,” Cole told the Mail on Sunday . “I think he’s got a lot of talent, if he comes to Chelsea, working with the group there – in Brendan [Rodgers] he’s got a great manager and a great team up at Leicester. But Chelsea is a step up from Leicester.
“I know they are sitting above Chelsea in the table at the moment but having the opportunity to work with Frank and improve would be immense for him.
“He’s got the left-back position for England in his hands at the moment.
“My advice would be to keep performing, keep consistent and if he does do that he can be England’s left-back and, if he does come to Chelsea, Chelsea’s left-back for many years. He’s a terrific player, a real talent.”
