Chelsea are reportedly interested in attracting Jamie Vardy to Stamford Bridge in January, as the Leicester City striker lead the goal scoring chart in the Premier League.
United boss Louis Van Gaal has reiterated his stance that he needs a player with pace and creativity to beef up his attack and Jamie Vardy is the kind of player that would deliver the goods at Old Trafford.
Chelsea need another striker to save their season with misfiring striker Diego Costa finding it hard to score the goals this season after suffering a deep in form.
Jamie has already scored 14 goals in the league this season and even broke the record held previously by Red Devils legendary striker; Ruud Van Nistelroy when he scored in 12 consecutive games surpassing Van Nistelroy’s record of 11.
Vardy’s form this season has led to United and Chelsea jostling for his signature after the striker netted against United, Arsenal and Chelsea and he looks ready to make the step up into the big teams as he has proven that he is set to play in any of the top teams in England and even outside England.
It’s definitely going to be a direct battle between Chelsea and United for his signature. However, recent reports claim Abramovich will be looking to do what it takes to beat United to his signature.Follow Football News Arena on Facebook and Twitter for the latest transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from across the major Leagues in Europe and around the World.
