Jose Mourinho is also looking for a defensive midfielder to allow Paul Pogba more freedom in attack and has been heavily linked to Bakayoko and Matic.

A striker both Chelsea and Man United have admired for some time appears to be heading to west London, according to Sky Italia. That's plenty of cash but Conte is a big admirer or Morata and given Costa is on his way out and Lukaku has arrived at United, signing Morata is a must.

Chelsea manager had wanted to sell Matic to United to finance their transfer outlays, and now it seems that the player, who shone in the Champions League last season, is heading to The Theatre of Dreams, in what will be another gaffe for the Chelsea transfer chiefs.

However, it is unclear whether the transfer will go through.

Chelsea close to signing Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko. The Colombian, top scorer at the 2014 World Cup, is free to leave the Spanish capital according to Sport newspaper.

In fact, recent reports have even claimed that the Red Devils have won the race to sign Bakayoko, stealing a march on the Premier League champions for the Frenchman.

Although the Blues failed with a bid of £37m earlier in the month it was expected they would come back with a bigger offer but apparently United are "confident" they have won the auction.

The 22-year-old French international was in fantastic form in Monaco's title winning campaign. Medical in next few days.

Bakayoko, whoever he joins, is likely to miss the start of the new season because of his knee issues.
