Man United ready to make ‘Surprise’ huge offer to sign Outstanding Chelsea star after club Warned not sell him this summer



Man United ready to make ‘Surprise’ huge offer to sign Outstanding Chelsea star after club Warned not sell him this summer

Wayne Bridge has warned Chelsea they would regret selling Ben Chilwell, who has emerged as a shock target for Premier League rivals Manchester United.

Since joining the Blues in 2020 after a £45 million transfer from Leicester City, Chilwell has made over 100 appearances for the team.

In his first season, Chilwell helped Chelsea win the Champions League.

Though he is regarded as one of the Premier League’s top left-backs, the 27-year-old has battled injury concerns throughout his career, playing in just 13 league games last season and just seven during the 2021–22 campaign.

According to reports, Chilwell’s future at Chelsea is “uncertain” now that Enzo Maresca has moved at Stamford Bridge. The Italian wants his full-backs to switch to midfield when his team has the ball.

Maresca took charge of his first training session on Monday after leaving Championship winners Leicester City earlier in the summer to replace Mauricio Pochettino in the Stamford Bridge hot-seat.

‘He’s missed a lot of games for Chelsea but if he can stay fit, then I don’t know why you’d want to get rid of him, unless there’s something going on in the background that we don’t know about.

‘I just believe that Ben has a lot of ability and is capable of proving himself, as long as he stays fit.

‘He’s going to have to prove himself if the manager is uncertain about him, but a manager’s head can be turned by a player rather than them being stubborn enough to just force someone out.

‘If Ben does well, then he’s still got a chance of remaining at Chelsea. There’s not an abundance of left-backs out there and Ben’s a great one.’

Asked if Chelsea will need to enter the transfer market and sign a new left-back should Chilwell leave, Bridge added: ‘I think so, yeah
