Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was interested in signing 22-year-old Tiemoue Bakayoko but the former Monaco midfielder always preferred joining Chelsea instead of Manchester United.
In a video released on his Instagram page, which seems to be an interview he granted before signing for Chelsea, Bakayoko revealed his favourite English club is Chelsea.
Even though Bakayoko plays for the France national team, the 22-year-old is also from Ivory Coast, the country of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba. Bakayoko also revealed Drogba is his role model.
“My English club which I liked very much was Chelsea,” Bakayoko said in the interview.
“Didier Drogba is from Ivory Coast like me. He’s an icon, a role model.”
