Clauss wanted by Man Utd and Chelsea

Manchester United are set to compete with Chelsea to sign Lens defender Jonathan Clauss this summer.

The Red Devils are aiming to bolster their right-back position, and are now considering a move for Clauss.

Clauss only made his top-flight debut with Lens two years ago, but he has been a sensational performer for them.

The 29-year-old made 16 goal contributions last term from the right wing-back role and is now a France regular.

According to Standard Sport, United have made an approach for Clauss, who is available for just £8 million.

However, they are unlikely to make a formal bid until they are able to offload Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer.

Chelsea are also keen on landing the exciting defender, but they also have a similar stance to the Red Devils.

The Blues don't plan to make a bid for him until they manage to part ways with captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

Azpilicueta has been fancied to make a switch to Barcelona.
