Chelsea keen on Bakayoko, Matic may leave

Meanwhile, news broke on Wednesday that Chelsea are close to making their first signing of the summer: Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Chelsea are closing in on the signing of Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko in a deal that could be worth around £42m, as per Independent.

Manchester United have been linked with a move to sign Bakayoko as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his options ahead of a return to the Champions League next term.

United maintain an interest in Chelsea's Nemanja Matic and Monaco's Fabinho, should they miss out on Bakayoko this summer.

Bakayoko will holds talks with Antonio Conte before his move.

The report claims that United tried to bring Matic to Old Trafford last summer, but Chelsea manager Antonio Conte refused to sanction a transfer and instead managed to convince the Serbian Spiderbeast to stay and play a key role in the squad.

Chelsea target Bakayoko and Tottenham star Eric Dier are also contenders for the holding role at United, but Mourinho said earlier in the season that buying off United's top four rivals would be virtually impossible, although he did not mention Chelsea in that conversation. This would see him pair up alongside fellow Frenchman N'Golo Kante.

The Serbian global has been linked with a move away from west London this summer and the Express suggest that Matic could head to Man Utd once Bakayoko's deal is concluded.

The France global, who has previously attracted interest from Manchester United and Liverpool, is on the cusp of a west London move after the Blues placed a five-year contract on the table.
