Recent reports suggested Chelsea were close to sealing a deal for Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, who was a key player as Monaco won the French Ligue 1 title.
However, a report on Manchester Evening News claim suggestions that Chelsea are close to signing the 22-year-old are premature.
The report suggests Bakayoko is calm over his future and is receptive to the idea of working under Antonio Conte or Jose Mourinho.
According to Manchester Evening News, Manchester United haven’t given up hope of signing Bakayoko.
Manchester United’s Anthony Martial is reportedly a close friend of Bakayoko and Mourinho reportedly hopes Bakayoko’s chances of a move to United could be helped by Anthony Martial.
