Leicester City are reportedly interested in Manchester United defender Luke Shaw as a potential replacement for Ben Chilwell, who is said to be keenly followed by Premier League rivals Chelsea.
Having started only in eight games, Shaw has been a fringe player for the Red Devils this season and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to have no limitations about selling the player as a bargaining chip to get James Maddison or make some cash for better signings.
Leicester City could potentially target to replace Chilwell if he decides to leave the King Power Stadium.
Both Chilwell and shaw appear to be evenly matched in terms of stats, with Shaw, in fact, being slightly better than the 22-year-old in terms of an average number of tackles (1.4) and accurate passes per game (87.6%).
Chilwell betters Shaw when it comes to interceptions (1.1) and clearances (2.2), as per WhoScored.com.
No matter the stats, Manchester United fans just want to see Shaw out and would love it if we could use him in a swap deal instead.
With some fans taking to Twitter and imploring the Foxes to take Shaw off their hands if at all possible. With that in mind, here’s what they had to say on social media down below.
Trade him for Maddison.
