According to the Independent, Manchester United is considering making an offer for Chelsea centre defender Trevoh Chalobah before the summer transfer market opens.

After Raphael Varane left the Red Devils, they were looking for a new defender, and the Blues academy graduate was one of their top targets to take Varane’s place.

Jonny Evans might also leave, Harry Maguire’s future at the Theatre of Dreams is questionable, and the team needs a reliable defender to back up Lisandro Martinez, who is prone to injuries.

Chelsea is eager to sell Chalobah after making an attempt to trade him last summer, but they must meet profit and sustainability requirements by the end of the following month.

The 24-year-old is the kind of player Man United wants to sign moving forward, and they are willing to pay almost £25 million for him.

Chalobah might be the first player to arrive in the coming weeks if all parties involved can reach an agreement. Red Devils co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe wants the manager of the team to commit to a recruitment model centred on bringing in five new players under the age of 25 this summer.

The former England youth international only made 17 appearances this season across all competitions due to injuries, but he still proved himself with some outstanding displays.

Chalobah was called “unbelievable” by Man United veteran Rio Ferdinand back in August 2021, and considering his immense talent, he could wind up being one of the league’s top centre backs.

The 6′ 4in defender may find a move to Old Trafford quite intriguing, and considering the low price he could fetch, the Red Devils shouldn’t miss the opportunity to sign him when the summer transfer market opens.
