Chelsea may activate Tammy Abraham buy-back clause but Man Utd are also interested in move for Roma striker


Chelsea may activate their £70.8 million (€80m) buy-back clause for Roma striker Tammy Abraham , according to reports. Manchester United are also interested in the England international with both Premier League clubs looking to bring in a striker in the summer transfer window.

Abraham has impressed during his time at Roma, registering 34 goals and 10 goals across 86 games for the Serie A side. The 25-year-old moved to the Italian capital in 2021 and helped Roma win the Europa Conference League last term under former Chelsea and United boss Jose Mourinho .

His impressive displays have seen him linked back with a move to the Premier League as Chelsea and United look set to battle it out, report The Athletic . Abraham progressed through the Chelsea academy and has scored 30 goals across 82 games for the Blues, with Stamford Bridge arguably the more likely destination given his association and familiarity with the west London club.

But a switch to Old Trafford would offer a fresh opportunity for Abraham and he may wish to link up with Erik ten Hag’s side instead, who have been sending scouts to watch him at Roma. Chelsea have spent over £600m on players since Todd Boehly replaced Roman Abramovich in the summer and Abraham might see United as the more stable option at the moment – although they are also looking at two other strikers .

United have just won the Carabao Cup and there could be more silverware on the way with the Red Devils still in the Europa League and FA Cup. Chelsea, meanwhile, have been massively struggling and are currently 10th in the Premier League table following early exits from the domestic cups. Graham Potter’s side are still in the Champions League but are 1-0 down to Borussia Dortmund after their first-leg meeting in the last 16.
