Man United and Chelsea reportedly battle over powerful Premier League star

When Jose Mourinho met with Chelsea earlier this season, the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern painfully had to watch his former side smash the Red Devils 4-0 during a miserable thumping at Stamford Bridge. 

Antonio Conte’s Blues disposed of United with absolute ease a few months ago, so the fans in the Tavern are hoping for a more closely contested battle on the transfer front if reports from the People (via the Daily Express) are to be believed.

They claim both United and Chelsea are keen on a move for West Ham United midfielder Michail Antonio this summer, following his mightily impressive few months in east London. The powerful midfielder has operated up and down the right-hand side for the Hammers, chipping in with his fair share of goals and earning a call-up to the England national side.

Scouts from both Premier League giants, as well as Everton, are understood to have been casting keen eyes over the former Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday man, who can operate as a powerful right-back. That position is particularly hard to find top-class options in of course.

With that in mind, the United and Chelsea fans in the Tavern are already dreaming about his arrival.

Where would Antonio fit in best? Let us know below…
