Chelsea target Bakayoko keen to hear from Man Utd (Martial key)

The 22-year-old Frenchman is one of the biggest young talents in Europe, and has enjoyed a superb season with AS Monaco, scoring the decisive goal to knock Manchester City out of the Champions League, which saw current United star and global teammate Anthony Martial tweet in appreciation.

Chelsea was reported to be leading the chase to sign Bakayoko but now the Manchester Evening News has claimed United could steal in.

Manchester United want to sign Tottenham and England midfielder Eric Dier this summer as Jose Mourinho sees him as the flawless replacement for Michael Carrick.

The report adds that, with Mourinho looking to beat former club Chelsea to Bakayoko's signature, he could call upon United ace and Bakayoko's former Monaco team-mate Anthony Martial to try and convince the midfielder to pick Old Trafford over Stamford Bridge.

"Tiemoue is listening to some clubs from England, including Manchester United, but there is nothing concrete right now", a source close to the player told M.E.N Sport. "If I have to go to PSG I'll go, that's all'".


"When I asked him to imagine that he'd move to PSG one day, he told me that he'd honestly like that".

"He wants to play in the Champions League and it will be a worry for a club that does not play in it". If they were to offer me a deal, I don't see why I would refuse it'.

"But he said, "I have time".

Bakayoko has made 26 appearances for Monaco this season and has taken the Ligue 1 by storm.
