Manchester United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta.
Azpilicueta has been on the books of Chelsea since 2012 and has a contract with the London outfit until June 2019, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.
According to Spanish publication AS, United want to sign the Spain international full-back in the summer transfer window.
It has been reported that incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is happy to let Azpilicueta leave this summer for a transfer fee of £11.8million.
Azpilicueta, who worked with new United manager Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, is one of the best and most consistent left-backs in the Premier League, and it does come as a surprise that the Blues are (reportedly) willing to let him go.
Below are some of the best comments:
Azpilicueta ain't that bad and as a matter of fact, he's been wonderfully consistent since his move. So why would Chelsea wanna cash in?— EXPLICIT™ (@Segun_MUFC) June 18, 2016

This Azpilicueta rumour is the biggest load of rubbish I've seen. Yes he'd be a good signing for RB but it has absolutely no legs to it— Alex (@_MartialMagic) June 17, 2016
