Chelsea setting eagle eyes on Man Utd captain after Tuchel’s improper behavior 

Chelsea news: Blues make Harry Maguire inquiry as Thomas Tuchel hit with a hefty fine

Blues make Maguire inquiry

Harry Maguire has been struggling recently for Manchester United and the doubt surrounding his place in Erik ten Hag’s starting line-up has reportedly prompted Chelsea to make a transfer inquiry.

The Blues are already in negotiations with United over the possible departure of Christian Pulisic and have asked about Maguire in a potential swap deal. Tuchel is desperate for defensive reinforcements and, although Wesley Fofana is the priority, it seems Chelsea is keeping their options open.

Leicester has rejected two bids in the region of £60million for Fofana, and, with Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, and Victor Lindelof, United could be tempted to offload their captain.

Thomas Tuchel has been fined £35,000 and handed a suspended one-game ban for his part in the scrap with Antonio Conte, as well as comments about Anthony Taylor, last weekend.

Tuchel got involved in a tense pushing and shoving match with Conte over the post-match handshakes before suggesting that “maybe it would be better” if Taylor never refereed his side again. Conte has been fined £15,000.

Both managers admitted improper behavior and Tuchel will still be allowed on the touchline for the Leeds game.
