Manchester United full-back Luke Shaw ‘sought after by Leicester as Ben Chilwell replacement’ by Red Devils seeking profit on £ 30 million man
- Leicester is said to be keeping a close eye on Man United’s backlog Luke Shaw
- The foxes are preparing for the possibility of Ben Chilwell leaving the club
- Chelsea would be willing to pay £ 60 million for the English star
- United demands a profit on Shaw, which they bought for £ 30 million in 2014
Leicester is said to be watching Manchester United’s full-back Luke Shaw as a long-term substitute for Ben Chilwell.
Chilwell, 23, has become one of the country’s best defenders during recent seasons with the King Power and is closely linked to a move to Chelsea from Frank Lampard.
According to plans for a potentially large departure from Chilwell, Leicester will look at 24-year-old Shaw to fill the gap.

The Mirror and Leicester Mercury states that the foxes have asked the United States about England’s international international to investigate the possibility of a deal.
United paid a high £ 30 million to Southampton for Shaw in 2014, but the youngster did not live up to the high expectations at his door.
A stop-start career under when manager Jose Mourinho would follow, with Shaw experiencing diving experiences in shape along with multiple injuries.

Leicester is expected to pay the odds for Shaw, with United wanting to make a profit on their £ 30 million investment.
Chelsea is reportedly willing to make a bid in the £ 60 million region for Chilwell, meaning that the Leicester side of Brendan Rodgers has money in the treasury.
However, every possible move will have to wait until the summer, because Rodgers has already eliminated the prospect of players leaving the club during the current transfer window in January.
Brendan Rodgers said no Leicester players will leave the club in January
At the end of December 2019, Rodgers said during his last press conference of the year prior to the competition: “No one will leave in January. Categorically.
‘No [I’ve not spoken with the board] but I am sure that if we speak that will be the case.
“It’s pretty clear that we want to keep this team together, a very exciting team with a lot of growth and development, so we want to make sure they stay after January.”
