Huge blow for Man Utd as player Rangnick recommended eyes Chelsea move instead

Manchester United could be set to miss out on RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol as he discusses a move to Chelsea.

Ralf Rangnick reportedly told United to sign Gvardiol before his role at the club ended, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Rangnick said the player was a 'must buy' but Erik ten Hag opted to sign his trustee Ajax defender, Lisandro Martinez.

Martinez has been superb for ten Hag this season and has created a strong partnership with former Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

What has Gvardiol said about a move?

Asked by The Athletic about a potential move to Chelsea, the RB Leipzig player replied: “About me and Chelsea? I don’t know. You know what happened in the last few months. To be honest, I have no idea.

“My agent is taking care of this and we will see. Right now, I’m happy in Leipzig. I don’t know, we will see – you never know. You know the stories and these things, but all I can say is that I’m happy in Leipzig and right now I’m going to stay there and perform for them.

“It’s a big club of course and, who knows, maybe one day I will be there. It’s really nice to see things like this, especially because there is Kovacic, so you never know. I talk with him.

“Even to be here on this, the biggest event, it’s a big thing for me at 20 years old so I’m happy. I have to think about it.”
