Manchester United could beat Chelsea to Tiemoue Bakayoko transfer

The Monaco defensive midfielder has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge all summer long, but a new plot twist means that he could be heading to Old Trafford.

They are also keeping hold of Nemanja Matic, reluctant to bow to United's riches.

Returning to The Star and it is reported that despite interest from West Ham Theo Walcott wants to remain with Arsenal. Two failures to get the Italian's top targets is not an ideal start.

Chelsea sealed the £34m signing of German defender Antonio Rudiger from Roma on Sunday, but their only other successful transfer this summer has been the free signing of ex-Manchester City back-up goalkeeper Willy Caballero, a major source of frustration for Antonio Conte. The Guardian report that the Red Devils have now shifted their attention to signing Tottenham's 23-year-old English international, Dier in a move that could soften the north Londoners resolve about their stance on the midfielder as Jose appreciates him for his will to improve, tactical versatility and potential. Sigurdsson is quick, creative, athletic and certainly has an eye for goals and assists - something Everton will desperately need, given that Lukaku is now out of the picture.

After rumours of a medical in late June, Chelsea were tipped to formally announce the Bakayoko deal when the transfer window officially opened on 1st July, but no such reveal was forthcoming. That is how Juventus broke up the deal for Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli.

Fresh after snatching Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea's grips, the Daily Star now claim that United are edging closer towards poaching yet another Chelsea target, Tiemoué Bakayoko. Think about it, you can easily imagine him fitting into Everton's squad, can't you? Losing Luakku is bad enough but Bakayoko as well could be the final straw for Antonio Conte.

If true, the player will suddenly have a decision to make over which Premier League club he wants to join.

He'll want more than that and there will be some fiddling but we're not going more than £2-4 million higher than that.

Meanwhile, Spanish media have been reporting that Diego Costa plans on no-showing pre-season training, as he seeks a return to Atletico Madrid.
