Harry Maguire has spoken very highly of both Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel as Todd Boehly scrambles to sign a centre-half before the summer transfer window slams shut. The 29-year-old has quickly become heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, with the Blues seemingly eager to bolster their backline.

According to the Daily Mail, the west Londoners have made a shock enquiry about the England international's availability amid growing doubt over his future at Old Trafford. It's said that Chelsea have raised the possibility of signing Maguire to answer enquiries made by the Red Devils for Christian Pulisic.

Interest in the United captain follows stagnated progress in the race to sign Wesley Fofana from Leicester City. The 21-year-old defender has too been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea and football.london understand that the Frenchman feels like the Foxes are trying to price him out of a move by requesting a world-record fee for his services.

It's believed that Fofana has already agreed personal terms over a move to west London, but the Blues have seen two offers – with the highest being around £70million – turned down by Brendan Rodgers' side. Chelsea are expected to submit a third bid in the region of £80million and have growing confidence that it will be accepted by their Premier League rivals.

Now, this is where Maguire has emerged as an alternative option in the event that Fofana - the primary target - doesn't pen a deal at Stamford Bridge. And, while a move for the struggling United defender may come as a shock, he's spoken very highly of both Chelsea and Tuchel in recent years.

"Obviously, Chelsea’s going to be a tough game but we went there last year and won and we’ll be looking to do that again," Maguire said in an exclusive club interview, speaking in February 2021.

"They’re keeping their position very nicely and build up really well and [are] not conceding many goals, so it’s a good start [for them]. We’re hoping to spoil that."

The clash between the two sides was shortly after Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard are the helm. Again, Maguire was impressed by the German's ability to transform Chelsea's dwindling misfortunes.

"It’s a great reaction [to the change]," added the £42.4million-rated defender. "They’re a great group of players with tons of talent and they’re starting to gel, starting to tick, but we've got to look at ourselves, first and foremost.

"We go into the game full of confidence, full of belief. We’ll make sure we play to the ability of what we’re capable of and go and get the three points."
