No thanks. Already have one injury prone LB. Don’t need another one. Plus Chelsea will want £50m at least.

That must be BS, with all th LB problems we had last season we are looking at a Chelsea injury prone full back. Yeah right!

Not convinced that the answer to our problems with our perpetually-injured 28 year old left back is to sign a new 27 year old perpetually injured left back.

Unless they fancy selling us Cucurella for 20m, lets not give Chelsea any money to dig themselves out of their hole with please.

Too injury prone and on pretty big wages himself. Can only see it as a loan, which doesn't really suit anyone.

I feel pretty confident in saying that this won't happen. Most likely a lazy journo or an agent trying to drum up interest.

This is nonsense. No way we would stock up our most problematic position with another crock.

Surely this cannot be true. He's as bad as Shaw with the injuries.

One injured left back providing competition for another injured one, seems legit.

Whatever left back we sign will probably be just some low cost guy as a temporary fill on while Malacia is apparently missing, Shaw is recovering, and Amass is too young.

Gallagher in 2 seasons has played almost as many Chelsea games as Chilwell has in 4 seasons. There’s less than 10 games difference.

He was brilliant the first 2 years or so even if he was kinda prone to injuries even then, but over time the injuries have taken their toll and he’s now a shell of the player he was in 2020 and 2021.

Will gladly offload him to United for £25-30m.

Saying a player is an option but nothing formal is probably the safest bet at breaking a transfer story you can get as a journalist.

Come on, you couldn't write this. Buying Luke Shaw some competition eh? The only competition he will give Shaw is for the treatment table.

What was the LB at Luton called? Surprised no one has been in for him yet, had a decent season.

Behind the right goal post as "Whiteside shoots!"

They don’t have to… just stick our name on a post/article and jobs a good un.

Thought this stuff went in the “Man United transfer tweets” thread. If we’re having a new thread for every crap journo post, Redcafe will be inundated

He'd need to work with Shaw so that their long periods out injured don't coincide with each other so we've one fit full back at any given time.

Yeah and when Luke realises his space on the treatment table is under threat, he'll start working harder on the pitch to make sure he gets a proper injury so Chilwell has to move out of his way.
