Chelsea FC are reportedly targeting Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire in a swap deal for Chelsea’s Pulisic.
In a shocking turn of events, Chelsea have reportedly inquired about the availability of embattled Manchester United defender Harry Maguire.
Chelsea are said to be keen to bring Maguire to Stamford Bridge as their search for a centre-back continuous to be hard as originally thought.
The Blues were heavily interested in Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana, but the asking price might price them out of a deal.
Thomas Tuchel went into the transfer market knowing that he had to look for defensive reinforcements following the departures of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger.
But so far, the club has only brought in Marc Cucurella and Kalidou Koulibaly while also renewing the contract of captain Cesar Azpilicueta.
Chelsea could use United’s interest in Christian Pulisic to land Maguire.
Maguire has been under siege for long periods of time at Old Trafford.
His place in Erik ten Hag’s squad was considered to be under threat when the club signed Lisandro Martinez from Ajax.
The Englishman has, however, started in both United games this season.
At Chelsea, he could fit into Tuchel’s back three operating in the middle of Koulibaly and Thiago Silva or on the right of the latter.
Christian Pulisic is ready to join Manchester United Sports Brief had earlier reported that Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic is reportedly keen to join rivals Manchester United this summer.
The American international has seen his fortunes at Stamford Bridge fall in recent weeks following the arrival of Raheem Sterling. Pulisic has largely failed to live up to his billing since joining Chelsea three years ago from Borussia Dortmund, with injuries hampering his progress.
