Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed the Blues are leading Manchester United in the race to sign France international midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

The midfielder is reportedly valued at around £40million by Monaco and is seen as a long-term replacement for Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.

Romano said: “Manchester United with (Ole Gunnar) Solskjaer were already planning to sign a new central midfielder, defensive midfielder for next summer.

“They had Tchouameni on their list, but this is complicated because Chelsea are leading the race for Tchouameni for a long time.”
