Ten Hag pushes Man Utd to burn off Chelsea for Monaco midfielder Tchouameni

Erik ten Hag is pushing Manchester United to sign AS Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Ajax coach's move to United is expected to be confirmed next week.

ESPN says he has identified who he wants the club to sign as he plots a transfer overhaul.

They state that Tchouameni is a top target for Ten Hag following the player's standout displays in Ligue 1 this season.

The 22-year-old has chipped in with three goals and two assists in 45 games in all competitions this term.

It has been stated that Tchouameni would likely replace his French compatriot Paul Pogba at United, who is expected to leave on a free transfer.

Though the news outlet claims that United face competition from Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain in the race to secure his services.

The Blues are said to have held talks with the ex-Bordeaux star's agent, but the uncertainty surrounding their ownership could see a deal fall through.

It has also been suggested that a switch to PSG is unlikely as the youngster prefers a move away from France.
