Latest Chelsea transfer rumours: Blues identify Declan Rice alternative, defender set for exit

Chelsea will be looking to register their third Premier League win of the season when they travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United this evening.

After spending more than £200million over the course of the summer transfer window on the likes of Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, the Blues have had an indifferent start to the season.

Whilst they have recorded impressive victories against both Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace, respectively, they have also played out frustrating 3-3 draws with both Southampton and West Bromwich Albion.

Though it has been an indifferent start to the campaign, Chelsea’s potential is exciting, with head coach Frank Lampard having been fortunate enough to add a wealth of talent to his squad over the summer.
