Chelsea are slightly concerned about potential Manchester United interest in Ipswich Town manager Kieran McKenna, according to the Guardian.


McKenna is a wanted manager after masterminding back-to-back automatic promotions at Ipswich from League One to the Premier League.


Ipswich are expected to offer him a new contract this week but the 38-year-old is expected to reject the approach.



He is reportedly prepared to move on from Portman Road and Chelsea are pushing hard to bring him to Stamford Bridge as their new manager.


The Blues have already contacted Ipswich but the west London club are wary of Manchester United’s interest in McKenna.



The Red Devils will take a decision on Erik ten Hag’s future following the FA Cup final and McKenna is on their radar if they decide to sack the Dutchman.


The Ipswich boss already has a prior relationship with Manchester United where he served as an academy coach and assistant manager under Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.



Chelsea are slightly concerned that McKenna could be drawn to Old Trafford if Manchester United make a move for him.
