Manchester United To Make Surprise Move For Chelsea Player
As Jose Mourinho starts to eye up his summer transfer targets to further improve a Manchester United side still far too short of their dominant best of a few years ago one former player has moved onto his list.
Managers move about so much in football nowadays that it's any wonder they get long enough to like a player so much that they want to bring them to their next club.
Of course when it comes to Harry Redknapp we all know that his wish list when he joins any team starts with Niko Kranjcar, Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe.

When Pep Guardiola joined Manchester City the fans were hoping the former Barca boss might bring some of his Camp Nou buddies to Manchester, they might have preferred if it wasn't Claudio Bravo!
For Manchester United fans when they got Jose Mourinho as manager they were probably worried that they'd be losing Juan Mata, instead Mata became extremely important before his injury.
Jose though has so far not gone after any of his former players since moving to Old Trafford. However, according to British press via the Express, he is lining up a move for Kurt Zouma in the summer.

Mourinho is sure to bring in another centre back at United next season considering his complete lack of options there at the moment.
With Chris Smalling and Phil Jones seemingly always out injured and Marcos Rojo currently recovering from a ligament injury the Red Devils are down to one 'proper' centre back.
Once again against Swansea City today Mourinho's side will field Daley Blind at centre back alongside last season's defensive signing Eric Bailly.

Zouma was a big part of Chelsea's team in the first half of last season until he ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament and only returned to the first team in January this year after nearly a year out.
Antonio Conte plays with a three man central defence but Zouma has only started two games in the league, even though he returned nearly four months ago.
Whether the Blues would be willing to lose a highly talented young central defender and strengthen a potential rival at the same time is anyone's guess!
Do you think he'll move to United?
