Chelsea, Manchester United keeping informed about Tosin Adarabioyo

A host of clubs, including Chelsea and Manchester United, are kept informed about Tosin Adarabioyo’s situation. 

According to Fabrizio Romano on Caught Offside, Tosin Adarabioyo’s suitors continue to increase, with Chelsea and Manchester United kept informed of his situation. The 26-year-old Newcastle target will leave Fulham as a free agent, with the Magpies the current front runners for his signature. 

Tosin Adarabioyo’s suitors kept informed

Tosin Adarabioyo continues to draw the attention of many of the top clubs in the Premier League, with the 26-year-old considered a big target for many suitors. The availability of a big central defender has brought many clubs closer to him, as he will not sign a new contract and will leave Fulham as a free agent. 

Newcastle United are considered the front runners in the chase, as Eddie Howe is keen to bring the ‘bargain‘ defender to cover for some already injured stars ahead of next season. They are already missing Jamal Lascelles and Sven Botman for many months to come with serious injuries, and a free transfer will certainly suit their pockets in this day and age of PSR. 

Manchester United are keen to hijack Newcastle’s move for Adarabioyo. The club is also looking for a Premier League-level player to add to its backline. It needs at least two new central defenders and would undoubtedly welcome a free arrival. 

Similarly, Chelsea are also considering Adarabioyo as a potential addition from local rivals Fulham, with Stamford Bridge likely an appealing prospect for the 26-year-old Newcastle target. Fabrizio Romano now insists Chelsea and Manchester United are among those kept informed of the defender’s situation while naming the Magpies as the front runners. 

Romano said, “My understanding remains that Newcastle remains the frontrunner. They are in advanced talks to sign Adarabioyo this summer and are also chasing another defender in Bournemouth’s Lloyd Kelly. Newcastle wants both players and is progressing well with these deals—they are optimistic about making it happen early in the summer.

“Chelsea and Man United are also informed on conditions of the Adarabioyo deal but at the moment, there is still no substantial change in the race to sign the centre-back; until he signs the contract, it’s still open, so let’s see what happens and if there are any surprises, but for the moment Newcastle are leading the race and their interest is the most advanced.”

Manchester United and Chelsea eye defenders

Manchester United will lose at least two or three central defenders in the summer, with Raphael Varane already linked with Chelsea. The Blues are also set to see Thiago Silva depart, and they consider the Frenchman to be a replacement for the Brazilian. 

In any case, these are two sides desperate for new centre-backs in the market, and they may scupper Newcastle’s bid to sign Adarabioyo.
