According to the news of the famous journalist Romano, Manchester United once regarded Emerson as an alternative to signing at left-back, in case he missed the preferred target, Teles.
Manchester United completed a number of transactions on the deadline of the transfer window. Among them, they paid a transfer fee of 15.4 million pounds to the Portuguese team Porto to sign Teles.
However, Romano said that if the transfer of Teles failed, Manchester United was prepared to offer Emerson to Chelsea as a substitute for Luke Shaw.
Emerson had an eye-catching performance when he played for Rome before, but his performance at Chelsea was difficult to meet expectations. The Italian international was rumored to be possible to join Naples and Juventus, and West Ham United was also interested in signing Emerson. .
