The Blues are ready to sign Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford next summer, according to media outlet Repubblica (via Calcio Mercato).

Rashford’s ability to play through the middle as well as out wide appeals to Chelsea and the Blues see him as a long-term solution to their attacking problems.

Rashford’s Manchester United contract expires at the end of the season and Chelsea are reportedly ready to pounce if the Red Devils fail to tie Rashford down to a new deal.

Rashford struggled for form last season but has started this season in brilliant form, scoring three goals already for Manchester United.
