According to reports, ‘The Daily Star’ claims that Manchester United have agreed on a deal for AS Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko. Chelsea had been the favorites to land the French international.
Since the deal hasn’t generally progressed and after Chelsea disclosed to Manchester United they would not offer them Nemanja Matic after Jose Mourinho’s side grabbed Romelu Lukaku from under the nose of the West Londoners, the Portuguese has apparently decided to remove the middle man and go for Bakayoko.
The midfielder was a star performer for the Ligue 1 Champions last season as they won their French title and reached the Semi-finals of the Champions League and is relied upon to proceed onward this summer.
The news of Mourinho’s side meeting Chelsea’s bid will come as further terrible news to Antonio Conte, who is purportedly becoming baffled with the club’s powerlessness to acquire his top targets.
