Manchester United had been eager on signing Cucurella on a short-term mortgage however his outing within the cup noticed them flip their consideration to Spurs’ Sergio Reguilon as an alternative. Ben Chilwell has been Chelsea’s first-choice wing-back to this point this season, with Ian Maatsen his deputy.
Maatsen’s long-term future is doubtful after getting into the ultimate 12 months of his contract. But when Chelsea can tie him right down to a brand new deal, they might nicely be trying to transfer Cucurella on.
Guardiola is clearly an admirer of the participant who got here by means of the ranks at Barcelona. Chelsea could hope Metropolis repeat their curiosity from final January and attempt to signal Cucurella once more.
They know they’d unlikely get wherever close to the £60m they spent on him. However after a £1billion outlay within the final three home windows, the Blues would welcome an inflow of money for a participant who Pochettino clearly would not view as a key squad member.
