‘Manchester United → Chelsea’ Will there be a ‘shock transfer’ between rivals? Interested in recruiting a ‘glass body fullback’

Manchester United are aiming for Chelsea’s glass-bodied full-back Ben Chilwell.

“Manchester United is considering a shocking transfer to sign Chelsea’s full-back Chilwell,” British media outlet “Kurt Offside” reported on the 9th (Korea Standard Time). 여우알바

Chilwell grew up as an English Premier League semi-caliber full-back for Leicester City. After growing up in Leicester’s youth team, Chilwell made his debut in the first team of the 2015/16 season. He became Leicester’s main left-back with 32 official matches and two assists in the 2017/18 season. He recorded four assists in 36 matches in the 2018/19 season, and three goals and four assists in 33 matches in the 2019/20 season.

Chelsea have shown interest in Chilwell. Chelsea brought in Chilwell, a rising full-back for 50.2 million euros (W75.1 billion) in August 2020 in Leicester City. Chelsea believe in Chilwell’s growth and have invested a huge amount of W75 billion.

Contrary to expectations, Chilwell was not satisfied at Chelsea. The decisive reason was frequent injuries. He suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament in November 2021 and also injured his hamstring in the 2022/23 season. Last season, he played only 21 games due to abnormalities in his hamstring and knee.

Chilwell has a fatal disadvantage of being a “glass body,” but there is a club that is watching him. It’s Manchester United. According to the British Daily Mail, Manchester United picked Chilwell as a fullback to compete with Luke Shaw. Shaw has a problem that he keeps his skills but has frequent injuries like Chilwell.

Manchester United and Chelsea are rivals, but they have recently made deals. Manchester United brought Mason Mount from Chelsea last summer. However, it remains to be seen whether Manchester United will embrace Chilwell at the risk of being hurt often.
