Chelsea and Manchester United interested in Weston McKennie

Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly keeping an eye on Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie.

Since joining Juventus, McKennie has oscillated between being a regular starter and more of a team player. This season, McKennie has been more involved in the first team and his performances are attracting the interest of several clubs in Europe.

According to Simon Phillips via his Substack column, Chelsea and Manchester United are among a host of clubs keeping an eye on the American midfielder.

The report claims that Tottenham, Newcastle, Borussia Dortmund, Atletico Madrid, Leeds United and Aston Villa are also interested in McKennie.

Manchester United recently signed Casemiro from Real Madrid to strengthen their midfield. However, the Brazilian is not the long-term answer due to his age, so signing a midfielder like McKennie, 24, would be a smart move.

Chelsea are in a similar position with their aging midfield, including N’Golo Kante and Jorginho. The Chelsea duo are also out of contract at the end of the season, so it’s no surprise to see Chelsea linked with McKennie.
