Chelsea will challenge Manchester United for Sheffield United defender Harry Maguire.

The Mirror says Manchester United boss David Moyes wants to boost his central defensive options and is eyeing-up a swoop for Maguire when the January transfer window opens.

Moyes has his scouts keeping a close eye on the Sheffield-born defender's form this term.

However, Chelsea are also interested, where coaching staff are likening the youngster to Blues captain John Terry.

Maguire, 20, is rated at £4 million by the Blades.
