News From Manchester: Chelsea ‘make decision’ as Manchester United target Hakim Ziyech and other rumours

The winger has not been able to nail down a regular place in the Blues starting XI, having made the line-up just 14 times in the league this season. Ziyech was a star player in Erik ten Hags Ajax side that reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2019.

His switch to Chelsea saw him win the competition last year before scoring in the UEFA Super Cup and lifting the Club World Cup. However, his 14 goals in 83 games have cast an underwhelming picture over his two-year stay.

Earlier this month, Marco van Basten encouraged ten Hag to scoop him from Stamford Bridge while speaking to Dutch media. And now, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has reported that Ziyech could be heading for the Chelsea exit door.

Ziyech won the Dutch cup-and-league double under ten Hag in the 2018/19 campaign. The new United boss is considering bolstering his attacking options this summer to give competition for Jadon Sancho and Anthony Elanga.

Meanwhile, Tutto Atalanta say United are frontrunners for Juventus centre-half Merih Demiral. The Turkey international spent this season out on loan at Atalanta, who narrowly missed out on a European place in Serie A.
