Chelsea set to sign Maguire from Man United
Chelsea have made a shock enquiry regarding Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire.
According to the Daily Mail, the England star is of interest to the Blues as they struggle to complete a deal for Wesley Fofana.
It’s thought that Chelsea have raised the possibility of bringing Maguire to west London as part of a deal to take Christian Pulisic to Old Trafford on loan.
The 29-year-old has come in for real criticism from some corners of the United fanbase after a mixed run of form contributed to some poor results for the club in recent weeks and months.
Chelsea are still thought to be prioritising a move for Leicester star Fofana, with his likely exclusion from the Foxes’ squad for this weekend’s clash with Southampton seen as a boost.
However with no breakthrough yet agreed for the 21-year-old, it seems that the Blues are looking elsewhere.
A former Leicester player himself, Maguire has made 146 appearances for the Red Devils since leaving the King Power Stadium in the summer of 2019.
