Manchester United have re-entered in the conversation to acquire ‘forgotten’ Chelsea academy product Trevor Chalobah.

According to a report by Fichajes, United are seeking to reinforce their defence as a part of their rebuild under Sir Jim, and they think Chalobah could be a key addition.

The defender has been with Chelsea since he was 6 years old, and he signed his first professional contract for the club in March 2018.

He quickly advanced through the youth ranks until he finally made the first team squad in the summer of 2021.

This was off the back of 3 consecutive loan seasons: first to Ipswich town, then to Huddersfield Town and finally Lorient before finally making his senior debut for the Blues.

His Chelsea honours include: an F.A Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

He was a pretty promising prospect at the start of his Chelsea career and despite the positive start, he has very much gone down the pecking order especially after the signing of Axel Disasi from Monaco and Levi Colwill being recalled from his Brighton loan spell.

He began the season injured and missed almost the whole of the season with only 4 appearances across all competitions and 206 minutes of play accumulated.

His early displays may still hold water to the potential he could still hold, and he could make for a good signing if he ends up leaving the bridge in the summer.

Manchester United has extensively suffered from injuries, especially to the backline.

In fact, as it is, the only fit senior centre backs are Rapha Varane and Victor Lindelof. The latter has sometimes had to play at left back as both United left backs have been injured for the better part of the season.

The report also mentions Bayern Munich and Inter Milan as admirers of the English international.

Chelsea have been splashing money left and right and for this reason, they are at risk of breaching Financial Fair Play. This puts them in a difficult position where they absolutely have to make sales before spending another dime.
