Chelsea want Manchester United star as a part of deal to send defender to Old Trafford

Chelsea are looking at a swap deal for Kurt Zouma as the French defender is being linked with a move to Manchester United, according to the Daily Telegraph’s Matt Law (h/t Express).

The journalist claims that if the Red Devils are looking to sign Zouma, Chelsea would want Anthony Martial in return.

L’Equipe (h/t Express) claim that the Red Devils are in talks with Chelsea regarding a move for Zouma since moves for Toby Alderweireld and Harry Maguire aren’t progressing. Zouma spent last season on loan at Stoke but had to deal with relegation.

The French defender was a Jose Mourinho signing when he was at Chelsea. The report from the Express claims that the French defender’s future at Stamford Bridge is still not certain.

Martial too is facing an uncertain future at United according to the report, and the player’s agent had also stated that the French attacker wanted to leave the Old Trafford club.

Chelsea could do with another attacker coming into the club and Martial is certainly someone who has a lot of potential that Maurizio Sarri can work with.

With Martial playing on one wing and Eden Hazard playing on the other, we could have one of the best attacks in the country.

The former Monaco man didn’t have a great season with the Red Devils last season but a transfer away from the club could be the right move to kick-start his career.
