  • Man Utd see off hijack bid from PL rivals £100m deal to go ahead involving player exchange

If Bakayoko was to pick United over Chelsea then it would be another huge boost for Mourinho in the transfer market and another damaging blow for Conte. On the other hand, Man Utd lack a strong DM and Bakayoko can solve that dilemma for Mourinho. Get the app and get the game.

Bakayoko was one of the constant fixtures in Leonardo Jardim's young side and racked up 51 appearances during the course of the season.

Chelsea close to signing Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport claim the Nerrazzurri are favourites to sign the Serbian international after a potential move to Manchester United fell through.

When Manchester United came calling, I didn't have to think twice. Medical in next few days.

West Brom are in talks with Bournemouth to sign defender Marc Wilson, 29, who would cost about £1m.

Only two CMs in Europe's top 5 leagues won 50+ tackles, 50+ aerial duels and completed 50+ take-ons in 2016/17. There were strong indications last week that the Brazilian left-back was contemplating a move to the Bridge but it's now being claimed that "he wants to stay in Italy".

United have informed Monaco they're willing to better any bid from Chelsea for the midfielder.

That puts United at the front of the queue at their expense, with Bakayoko viewed as an alternative to Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, the Blues continue to remain locked in negotiations with Monaco, with a fee between £35 million and £40 million.
