Manchester United and Chelsea continue to monitor talented Serie A midfielder

There have been contrasting fortunes for Chelsea and Manchester United in the Premier League this season with Antonio Conte’s men charging towards the title with just a couple of games left to play!

Meanwhile the Red Devils have had some success of their own, winning the EFL Cup but apart from that, their league form has been poor.

The United fans here in the Tavern have been gutted to see so many home draws as Chelsea have strolled towards the title but there could be another showdown between the two clubs this summer.

According to a report in the Metro, both Chelsea and Manchester United continue to monitor the progress of Atlanta midfielder Franck Kessie, who has been in superb form this season.

He’s helped his side as high as fifth place in Serie A this season and Atlanta’s sporting director Giovanni Sartori believes his player is waiting for an offer from Chelsea this summer.

“The player wants to wait until the end of the season to make a decision, partly because he is attracted to the Premier League, as Chelsea really like him,” he told Itasportpress.

It’s set to be a busy summer for both United and Chelsea but where will Kessie end up?
