United, Liver­pool join bid for Bakayoko

New Straits Times - - Sport -

MANCH­ESTER: Manch­ester United and Liver­pool have made en­quiries for Chelsea tar­get Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The Monaco mid­fielder is ex­pected to move to Stam­ford Bridge as the Premier League cham­pi­ons pre­pare a £40 mil­lion (RM225 mil­lion) of­fer for the 22year-old.

How­ever, United, Liver­pool and Paris St Ger­main have all made en­quiries via his rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

Like many of Europe’s elite clubs, United have taken a keen in­ter­est in Monaco’s squad with Bernardo Silva, Fabinho and Kylian Mbappe also on their sum­mer wish­list.

Chelsea’s Ne­manja Matic is another op­tion for United’s mid­field while a move for Eric Dier at Tot­ten­ham has been dis­cussed but deemed un­likely.

Monaco’s 23-year-old Brazil­ian Fabinho is also wanted by Manch­ester City while Real Madrid have pushed for Mbappe.

Monaco have al­ready lined up Youri Tiele­mans from An­der­lecht as a re­place­ment for Bakayoko.

They are also of­fer­ing con­tract ex­ten­sions to Radamel Fal­cao and Mbappe. Daily Mail
