Man United line up summer transfer swoop for Chelsea player – report
Manchester United could make a bid to sign Kurt Zouma from Chelsea this summer, say reports
Manchester United are being linked with a summer transfer swoop to sign defender Kurt Zouma from Chelsea by reports in the British media.
The Sun are reporting that the Red Devils are pondering a move to bring the 22-year-old French defender to Old Trafford this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his defensive options ahead of his second season in charge.
Zouma has found his first-team opportunities at Chelsea to be severely restricted this season after only recently recovering from a serious knee injury.
The story claims that Mourinho “trusts” Zouma after having coached him during his second spell in charge at Chelsea and that the Portuguese coach is determined to bolster his defence this summer.
Zouma has struggled to hold down a spot in the Chelsea team under Antonio Conte following David Luiz’s return to Stamford Bridge from PSG last summer.
The France international no longer appears to be first choice at Chelsea and Manchester United could be set to test the Blues’ resolve with a bid this summer.
Chelsea take on Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge next Monday night as they look to take a step closer towards winning the title.
