Manchester United have submitted a loan proposal to Chelsea for defender Marc Cucurella.

The Athletic reports that Chelsea have already responded to the offer and that talks are ongoing between United and the Blues.

Cucurella only joined Chelsea in a whopping £62 million deal from Brighton last summer, but has fallen out of favour at the club.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is looking for a new left-back following injuries to Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia.

United has also been linked with the likes of former Chelsea star Marcos Alonso, Roma defender Leonardo Spinazzola and Brentford star Rico Henry.
