Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell is of interest to Manchester United, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly considering a swoop for Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell.

The 22-year-old, who has also been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea, is just three appearances short of 100 for the Foxes in all competitions.

The England international has a contract the King Power Stadium until the summer of 2024, but there has been a whole host of speculation surrounding the defender in recent months.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Chilwell is of interest to the 20-time English champions, suggesting that Luke Shaw's time at the club could be coming to an end.

Shaw was voted United's Players' Player of the Year and Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year for the 2018-19 campaign, having enjoyed easily his most productive season for the club.

The 24-year-old has missed his team's last nine matches with a hamstring problem, though, which has seen club captain Ashley Young take on an important role in the first XI once again.

United, meanwhile, are allegedly confident of completing a deal for Chilwell's club teammate James Maddison, whose future has also been the subject of much speculation in recent months.
