Manchester United Face Chelsea Competition to Sign Jonathan Clauss
As teams in the EPL continue to reinforce their sides with quality signings, Manchester United look set to rival Chelsea for RC Lens right back Jonathan Clauss.
Sources have revealed that though Chelsea have been monitoring Clauss for the past year, Manchester United’s lack of quality depth at right back may have prompted them to make an attempt to snatch the player off the hands of their rival at the last minute.
Clauss, a natural wing-back by trade is in the final year of his contract and it would be interesting to see how this plays out for the 29-year-old as both Chealsea and Manchester United make their moves.
Given that he is in the final year of his contract, Clauss might be available for as little as £8m in the current transfer window, which would be a steal regardless of where he ends up in the premier league.
