Man Utd want to sign ‘unbelievable’ defender to replace Varane, £25m could land him

Manchester United are weighing up a bid for Chelsea centre-back Trevoh Chalobah ahead of the summer transfer window, according to the Independent.

The Red Devils are in the market for a new defender following the departure of Raphael Varane, and the Blues academy graduate has been identified as one of their major targets to replace him.

Jonny Evans could also move on, while Harry Maguire’s future is uncertain, and the club needs a solid defender to partner injury-prone Lisandro Martinez.

Chelsea must meet Profit and Sustainability rules by the end of next month and are willing to sell Chalobah after attempting to move him on last summer.

They want around £25 million for the 24-year-old, and he fits the bill for the type of signing Man United want to make.

Red Devils’ co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe wants the club’s manager to agree to a recruitment model based on bringing in five new players under the age of 25 this summer.

Chalobah could be the first to arrive in the coming weeks if all parties involved can reach an agreement.

Injuries limited the former England youth international to 17 appearances across all competitions this season, but he proved himself again with some brilliant performances.

Man United legend Rio Ferdinand dubbed Chalobah ‘unbelievable’ in August 2021, and he has the potential to become one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League given his huge talents.

A move to Old Trafford could appeal to the defender, and the Red Devils should not hesitate to land him once the summer transfer window opens.
