    Manchester United have reportedly moved ahead of Manchester City and Chelsea in the race to sign Ben Chilwell.

    According to The Sun, the Red Devils are now front-runners to capture the England left-back, who has made 27 appearances for Leicester this season.

    Chilwell has been a long-term target of Chelsea’s, with various reports suggesting he is one of Frank Lampard’s prime targets for the upcoming transfer window.

    However, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to add a new left-back to his squad and is said to be ready to make a £60million offer to prise Chilwell to Old Trafford this summer.

    The breakthrough of Mason Greenwood and superb form of Bruno Fernandes has clicked Solskjaer’s attack into gear, with the club now mounting a strong challenge for the top four.

    Former Blues defender Ashley Cole, however, believes Chilwell would be a better fit at Stamford Bridge.

But Chelsea is a step up from Leicester.

    “I know they are sitting above Chelsea in the table at the moment but having the opportunity to work with Frank and improve would be immense for him.

    “He’s got the left-back position for England in his hands at the moment.

    “My advice would be to keep performing, keep consistent and if he does do that he can be England’s left-back and, if he does come to Chelsea, Chelsea’s left-back for many years. He’s a terrific player, a real talent.”
