Chelsea watching Man Utd talks for De Jong

Chelsea are watching Manchester United's talks for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

The Guardian says Chelsea are keenly monitoring any developments surrounding the 25-year-old.

It comes after Manchester United agreed a fee with Barca worth around £56million with add-ons included.

The Netherlands international may be able to add much-needed depth and long-term security to the middle third for Thomas Tuchel.
