Manchester United open talks with Chelsea for defender

Transfer: Manchester United in talks to sign Chelsea defender

Now, it seems they have set their sights on Chelsea outcast Zouma.

Manchester United have opened talks with Chelsea over a surprise swoop for Kurt Zouma as they look to try and sign a centre-back on deadline day, according to L'Equipe. After two years of gradual progress within the first-team setup at Stamford Bridge, the player saw his development come to a grinding halt when he sustained a major knee injury.

Spending a year ago on-loan with Sunderland, suffering relegation from the Championship, the Liverpool Echo reported last month that Browning would seek another loan move this season - but it now may be time to consider a permanent exit. Manchester United need a defensive upgrade on the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones and Zouma is certainly that.

The new rules will increase culling quotas and more shooters to operate under a single license, a government press release states. Others have had to bulldoze orchards or lose their farms, leaving entire families without income, according to Australian media.

Adding Zouma to their squad would complete a very successful transfer window for new Everton boss Marco Silva. A number of defenders have been linked with the Premier League heavyweights as Jose Mourinho aims to solidify his backline for the upcoming season.

Everton have been one of the busiest clubs on the Premier League's transfer deadline day and have already signed Yerry Mina, Andres Gomes and Bernard on last minute deals.

Zouma was signed by Mourinho in 2014 when he was the manager of the London based outfit. And Kurt Zouma could still join him on Merseyside, even though the transfer window slammed shut at 5:00pm on Thursday.
