Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea. The Blues are open to letting him leave on loan or a permanent deal.
However, the Red Devils face strong competition from A.C Milan for the winger. Although, United are trying to lure him due to his great record under Erik Ten Hag.
CHELSEA ARE LOOKING TO MAKE BIG CHANGES IN THEIR SQUAD
Chelsea’s summer rebuild continues as Thomas Tuchel shuffles his squad to challenge for the title next season. The German coach made a brilliant start to last season. However, the controversies around the ownership of the club and the dip in their form saw them fall off towards the end of the season. Even after falling off, the club finished third in the Premier League table.
Since then, the club has been sold to new owners. However, some key players left the club. New owner Todd Boehly promised to back Tuchel in the transfer market. It looks like he is getting backed. They have already completed the signings of Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly. However, more signings mean some players including Ziyech will have to leave the club.
HAKIM ZIYECH AND MANCHESTER UNITED TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
With additions to the squad, a look at the existing squad is necessary. Chelsea needs signings in defense and midfield. However, the Blues are stacked up in attack with the arrival of Raheem Sterling. That could see some departures from the squad. The departure of Romelu Lukaku has already been confirmed. However, the likes of Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic, and Hakim Ziyech are also rumored to leave this summer. But it looks like Ziyech could join a Premier League rival.
According to reports, Erik Ten Hag is plotting a reunion with the 29-year-old in the summer. The report also adds that the move of Hakim ZIyech to AC Milan is shattered. The move is in a little doubt. It also adds that if the move for him drags the Red Devils might try to hijack the deal. However, it remains to be seen whether Chelsea will allow him to join a direct rival.
Manchester United have already completed the signings of Christian Eriksen and Tyrell Malacia. They are also set to sign Lisandro Martinez who is set to snub Arsenal. Erik Ten Hag has reportedly told the hierarchy to sign a right winger. However, the club priority in the right-wing position is Antony.
