A Manchester United star has been added to Chelsea’s shortlist as Pochettino looks for “experienced” players.

Luke Shaw, a left back for Manchester United, is targeted by Chelsea for a January transfer shortlist.

Surprisingly, Chelsea has reportedly added Manchester United mainstay Luke Shaw to their transfer shortlist in an attempt to bolster their left-back depth.


Simon Philips (via Express) claims that Chelsea is considering making a move for the England international. The United left-back is still unavailable after missing most of the current campaign with an injury. One has to ask themselves if Chelsea wants to sign another player who is prone to injuries.


Given that Chelsea has no options at fullback due to Marc Cucurella’s injury and Ben Chilwell’s recent recovery from a hamstring injury, Mauricio Pochettino has been forced to play Levi Colwill as a left-back.


Malo Gusto, who is naturally a right-back, has also played left-back, so the Blues have been forced to look for reinforcements due to a lack of options at left-back. Furthermore, Gusto hasn’t been able to advance and take ownership of the role; he is still a work in progress.


Moreover, Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has already counseled the team to sign players with Premier League experience. He made this announcement to the media after Chelsea defeated Fulham 1-0:

“Having players with Premier League experience is important.” When comparing our players to Fulham’s players, we don’t have nearly as many who have been in the league for as long.

We discuss Chelsea, and that is true, but we are currently assembling a new squad. This kind of game can encourage us to trust the procedure.


This is only partially accurate because having players with league experience makes the manager’s job easier and enables him to put his plan into action faster, giving the players more time to adapt to the changing circumstances. Internationally signed players require more time to adjust to their new environment and occasionally fall short of expectations, leading to their eventual sale.



From a tactical perspective, they also become accustomed to playing at a Premier League level of intensity, which adds a great deal of experience and speeds up squad building. Timo Werner is one example of this who never seemed to fit in the league.

Shaw has experience and is generally a dependable contender, even though he isn’t the best in his position. It is unclear if Manchester United is prepared to consider offers.
