Man Utd ‘fail in late bid to hijack Chelsea transfer’ after Erik ten Hag sack decision delay

Manchester United have failed in a bid to hijack a Chelsea transfer amid the delay in a decision over Erik ten Hag’s future, it has been claimed.

The Mail Online has claimed United made a late attempt to sign Tosin Adarabioyo, but talks over a move to Chelsea were already too far advanced.

The 26-year-old is on the verge of being confirmed as the first signing of the Enzo Maresca era at Chelsea, having allegedly undergone medicals on Tuesday and agreed to a deal with the West London club pending the official expiry of his contract with Fulham.

However, Chelsea made an offer last month and returned with an improved proposal last week once Maresca had been confirmed as their new manager.

Adarabioyo and Maresca had previously worked together at Manchester City, with the Italian said to have been central to the defender’s decision to join Chelsea.
