Manu Kone is having a solid campaign at Monchengladbach.
Fabrizio Romano claimed that Chelsea are hoping to land Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Manu Kone.
Romando said, “It’s my understanding that three clubs in the moment are leading the race for Manu Kone, one for sure is Chelsea. Chelsea will be there. Manchester United are following the player too, so Chelsea, Man United and PSG.
“Other clubs still have time to enter the race and try to lead the race in the next few weeks but these three clubs are already exploring contacts and situation for Manu Kone.
“So, keep an eye on him because the expectation is for a summer move. It’s my understanding that a summer move will be worth at least, at least €50m with add-ons. So it’s going to be an expensive deal for Manu Kone.”
Kone is having a solid campaign at Monchengladbach after putting in a handful of dominant displays at the heart of their midfield. The Frenchman has scored one goal and secured one assist in 25 matches this season in various competitions.
The 21-year-old is a good tackler of the ball and can time his challenges well to earn possession back for his team at the centre of the park.
