Chelsea’s £15m Deal Under Threat With Man Utd Ready To Hijack Move

Premier League champions Manchester United are trying to hijack Chelsea’s £15m move for Dutch wonderkid Marco van Ginkel, according to the Express newspaper.

With the summer transfer window set to open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Man Utd are ready to hijack Chelsea’s move for Marco van Ginkel.

Premier League champions Manchester United are trying to hijack Chelsea’s £15m move for Dutch wonderkid Marco van Ginkel, according to the Express.

The highly-rated midfielder enjoyed an excellent season with Vitesse Arnhem last year, scoring 8 goals to help the club finish a respectable fourth in the Eredivisie table.

The 20-year-old has recently been tipped for a move to Chelsea with new boss Jose Mourinho believed to be keen on bringing in more youth to his squad and the Europa League winners were expected to beat Dutch champions Ajax to the players signature this summer.

However, it seems Chelsea now face stiff competition from Man Utd with the Express claiming that chief Old Trafford scout Jim Lawlor has been in Turkey to watch the midfielder in action for Holland at the European Under-21 Championships with United understood to be keen on luring him to Manchester this summer.

The major problem United face is that Chelsea have a partnership with Vitesse Arnhem that sees them have first refusal on their players, but the report suggests that won’t stop David Moyes from attempting to hijack their rivals move.

The newspaper also claims that Moyes’ has been forced to look at other midfield options after Barcelona made it clear they didn’t want to sell his number one target, Cesc Fabregas, despite the Premier League champions indicating they would pay £40m for the Spaniard.

    There is no need to fear about the boy bcos everybody know he is a Chelsea player waiting to be unveil with Andre Schurrel next month. Man Utd should look elsewhere if not they will be disappointed.
