Will United sign Ten Hag?

There has been some shock claims that Manchester United are lining up a shock move for Chelsea star Ben Chilwell.

After a very disappointing season last year – Man United have been in the transfer headlines alot over the past few months as there are a number of players linked with a move to Old Trafford.

It is no secret that Erik Ten Hag really struggled to get his side going in the Premier League last season – and that defence became a real source of worry for the Dutchman – as the club simply allowed too many goals to go in.

Manchester United are now looking to to recruit a new left-back and according to MailOnline, the club have Chilwell on their shortlist of options.

The 27-year-old, who Chelsea signed in a £50m deal from Leicester City in 2020, missed out on a place in England’s Euro 2024 squad after starting just nine Premier League games for the Blues last season.

Chelsea have had no desire to sell the England star – but would be open to a potential deal should they get close to that £50 million they paid Leicester City just a few seasons ago.

Chilwell would also add cover for the injury-prone Luke Shaw – who returned from a five-month absence as a substitute in England’s penalty shootout win against Switzerland on Saturday.

‘The last four months have been really tough,’ Shaw said on Monday.

‘I think obviously, at the start I was expected to come back a lot sooner but, you know, I went through quite a few setbacks, to be honest. But I’m here now and it was really nice to get on the other night.

‘I’ve been itching to get some minutes. It’s been a long while but really pleased that I was able to get on the pitch and get some minutes, and of course, now hopefully get some more in the next game.’
