Manchester United leading the race for Ben Chilwell
The Foxes defender is a key target as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aims to build a title-challenging team for next season.
Chilwell has been a key component in Leicester’s unexpected stint in the top four this season. Currently one point ahead of us, the Foxes are deserving of their spot.
Interest in Chilwell is high, with both Chelsea and Manchester City keen. Left-back is a key position that Frank Lampard intends to strengthen. With both Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso both out of favour, reinforcing is required. (h/t Sun)
The same can be said for Pep Guardiola, who is keen to replace the underperforming duo of Benjamin Mendy and Oleksandr Zinchenko.
It is likely that the biggest loser in the situation will be Shaw. According to the report, such a move will raise questions regarding his future at the club.
The 24-year-old has failed to live up to expectations since making his move to Old Trafford in 2014. The most expensive teenager in world football back then, Shaw struggled with both form and injuries.

Now back in shape, he has kicked up a level and even won the club’s player of the year last season. However, the club cannot afford to be sentimental and will need to make hard choices when necessary.
Having sold us Maguire for a king’s ransom, the Foxes could demand an exorbitant price for Chilwell. It is for the club to decide if that money is better spent elsewhere.
