Man Utd prepare summer bid for Leicester star

Manchester United have revived their interest in Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell, according to a report.

Chilwell has established himself as England’s first choice left-back, leading to links with a number of the Premier League’s traditional bigger clubs.

Chelsea were previously thought to be the front-runners for the 23-year-old, but according to the Metro, Manchester United have now re-entered the race to sign him.

United had been said to have put their pursuit of Chilwell on hold due to the emergence of Brandon Williams at left-back, but despite the academy product being one of the bright spots of their season, they have decided to bolster their ranks in the summer with more proven talent.

The Metro claim that Chilwell is now a priority for the Red Devils – but any bid will come in the summer, rather than January.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that none of his key players will be allowed to leave mid-season, as the Foxes look to keep hold of their top four spot.

However, United will be willing to test their resolve in the summer – with teammate James Maddison also still on their radar.
