Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Leeds United goalkeeper Illan Meslier next summer.

The Frenchman has developed into one of the Premier League’s best shot-stoppers and he has been touted for a bigger challenge.

Foot Mercato now claim that United and Chelsea are both keen on landing his services and there could be a bidding battle for him.

United are currently eyeing a new keeper with better distribution and mobility than David de Gea whose contract expires in June.

On the other hand, Chelsea are ready to part ways with Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy to bring in a quality young replacement.

Meslier would be an ideal long-term acquisition for them, but the big question is how much Leeds could demand for his services.

He was valued in the region of £25 million last summer, but the fee could potentially raise to £40m amid the vast interest in him.

Bayern Munich and Juventus have also been linked with the 22-year-old.
