A round up of transfer stories connected to Chelsea this morning.
Chelsea and Manchester United will go head-to-head for Southampton’s Luke Shaw according to this morning’s reports.
United were reportedly preparing an assault to land the teenage defender this week but Chelsea have now come into the equation according to the Mirror.
Current left-back Ashley Cole used Twitter to tell fans they shouldn’t get used to seeing him start games.
Chelsea are also locked in a battle with United over the signing of Saint-Etienne star Kurt Zouma.
The Mirror suggests that Chelsea believed a deal was agreed ahead of the summer but David Moyes’ United are now trying to poach the teenager away.
Mourinho reportedly sees Zouma as a long term replacement for Chelsea icon John Terry.
Chelsea are reportedly looking to send talented youngster Islam Feruz out on loan.
The under-21 striker extended his contract with the club last week and the Blues apparently want to send him on loan to enhance his first team experience.
