Manchester United and Chelsea to battle it out for Ligue 1 star

Chelsea and Manchester United are set to go head to head for RC Lens defender Jonathan Clauss this summer, with both sides interested in a deal worth £8m for the defender.

The 29-year-old right wing-back is down to the final year of his contract with the Ligue 1 side and has made it clear that he will not sign a new deal with the Ligue 1 side despite an impressive season that saw him return 5 goals and 11 assists in 27 top flight appearances.

The Blues are thought to be keen on bolstering their options at right wing-back, with Reece James a star performer but hampered by injuries last season, while the future of Cesar Azpilicueta remains unclear amid Barcelona interest.

However, they will face competition from the Premier League and across Europe, with Erik ten Hag unhappy with his current right-back choices and Aaron wan-Bissaka likely to leave the club this summer.

Also interested are Lyon, who have seen an opening 5m euro bid turned down, and Marseilles, who have also seen their £6m offer rejected.

There is interest from Spain too, with Atletico Madrid monitoring the situation, though that may change as they close in on Udinese defender Nahuel Molina.

It is the English clubs poised to duel it out, however, with the French sides struggling to find the funds, leaving a clear run for one of Manchester United and Chelsea to land their man.
