Bakayoko was a key player for Monaco last season. Today, more on the future of Tiemoue Bakayoko...
Isn't Tiemoue Bakayoko signing for Chelsea...? Medical in next few days.
United are reported to be ready to make an offer in excess of £40m for Dier in a bid to test Tottenham's resolve, with their eagerness to find a long term replacement for the veteran Michael Carrick one of Mourinho's chief targets.
While the club had concerns on the issue, those are reported to have dissipated and his medical could now take place this week. Jose Mourinho is eager to sign a defensive midfielder for his squad in order to forge a strong unit at Old Trafford.
Chelsea however successfully went through with the signing of AS Roma's Antonio Rudiger, making his their first major signing of the transfer window after the rather quiet arrival of goalkeeper Willy Caballero.
Monaco care less about Chelsea's misfortune in the transfer market with the Blues £35m as good as Mancunian notes coming to the same tally.
