Report: Chelsea 'want' Manchester United's Maguire

Report: Chelsea 'want' Manchester United's Harry Maguire in a swap deal involving Christian Pulisic

August 19, 2022 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Blues are reportedly keen on signing the Manchester United skipper with the expectation that Pulisic will go in the opposite direction.

Chelsea have reportedly made a shock enquiry regarding Manchester United defender Harry Maguire's availability in what could be a potential swap deal involving Christian Pulisic. The Blues are said to be eyeing a move for the English defender amid reports that Erik ten Hag is preparing to drop him for Monday's clash with Liverpool.

After a couple of dismal performances for Manchester United in the new campaign, Maguire's place in Erik ten Hag's side is said to be under threat. The former Leicester City centerback has already come under massive criticism for the role he played in the defeats against Brighton and Brentford in the Red Devils' first two games of the season.

Ahead of Monday night's blockbuster clash with Liverpool, the 29-year-old English center-back faces the possibility of being dropped from the starting lineup with his side's new boss aiming to experiment with a Varane-Martinez pairing. The Dutch coach is expected to make his final decision in the next 24 hours.

Amid the uncertainty surrouding Maguire's future at United, Chelsea are reportedly eyeing a swoop for the defender with their own pursuit of Leicester City's Wesley Fofana hitting a snag. With the Red Devils reportedly exploring the possibility of signing Christian Pulisic on loan this summer, the Daily Mail has reported that there is a proposition on the table from the Blues for the club to send its skipper in the opposite direction.

Thomas Tuchel is rumored to be onboard with the plan to secure the service of the Maguire despite the decision generating an uproar among the club's fanbase on social media.
