Manchester United Eyeing Chelsea Defender Marc Cucurella

In the latest transfer buzz, Manchester United is reportedly gearing up for more action with Chelsea ahead of the 2023 summer transfer window’s conclusion.

Red Devils are preparing to kickstart negotiations with Chelsea over the potential acquisition of defender Marc Cucurella. Renowned transfer news guru Fabrizio Romano brought this exclusive update to fans through his official Twitter account on Saturday, August 26, 2023.

The pressing need for Manchester United is a left-back, particularly with Luke Shaw sidelined due to an injury that is expected to keep him out for the early part of the 2023/24 season. Cucurella, who made his move to Chelsea from Brighton during the 2022 summer transfer window, inked a six-year deal, tying him to the Blues until at least 2028.


Nevertheless, there’s a caveat to this potential transfer, as Chelsea may only consider selling the Spaniard if they secure a suitable replacement, given Lewis Hall’s departure to Newcastle United.

Should this deal materialize, it would mark the second major addition for Old Trafford this season, following Mason Mount’s £60 million move.
