Swap deal with Harry Maguire and Chelsea's Christian Pulisic?

Chelsea apparently want to convince Manchester United of a spectacular swap deal. As the Daily Mail reported, the Blues asked the Red Devils about the possibility of signing Harry Maguire.

“Chelsea eye shock deal,” headlined the English newspaper. Earlier there were reports United were interested in Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic. The Londoners could obviously imagine a swap between the two players.

Maguire is still the world’s most expensive defender after United paid €87m for him to Leicester City in 2019. Since then, however, the 29-year-old has often been noticed with performance fluctuations and blunders, which sometimes made him the laughing stock of the fan scene.

United coach Erik ten Hag relied on the Englishman for the first two games of the season, but after two bad defeats Maguire could threaten the bench in the classic against Liverpool on Monday evening. The report of Daily Mail According to Maguire, he really wants to be a regular player, especially with a view to the World Cup in Qatar in the autumn. However, Maguire would only be a plan B for Chelsea should Wesley Fofana’s transfer not work out.

Pulisic, on the other hand, is only second choice for Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel, in the first two games of the season he did not get past short appearances. Also in the past season, the American rarely belonged to the starting eleven. Meanwhile, United are desperately looking for attacking players to improve the quality of their squad.
