Manchester United are weighing up a sensational move for Chelsea star Marcos Alonso according to the latest media reports.
United boss Jose Mourinho is reported to be ready to splash out a massive £70 Million for the Spaniard claims the Mirror.
If United were to succeed in landing the 27-year-old it would be the second consecutive summer that the Red Devils would have made a major raid on Chelsea following the purchase of Nemanja Matic last summer.
Alonso is one of the most influential players at Stamford Bridge and the Blues will be reluctant to sell, however, a lot will depend on who is the Chelsea manager in the summer months.
Chelsea fans would also not be too pleased if the club allows another important player to depart for a direct rival and that could well have an impact on any decision the club makes in relation to selling Alsono to United.
It is hard to see this deal happening but that is what was being said before Matic set up camp at Old Trafford.
