According to RMC, Manchester United have contacted Chelsea over a possible move for Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The 24-year-old midfielder is back at Stamford Bridge after spending last season on loan at AC Milan but there are doubts he has a future at Chelsea under Frank Lampard.

The report claims Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified Bakayoko as a possible replacement for Paul Pogba who could leave Old Trafford for Real Madrid this summer.

French champions Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in a move for Bakayoko and RMC claim PSG’s new Sporting Director Leonardo has discussed a possible transfer with the representatives of Bakayoko.

Leonardo was responsible for taking Bakayoko to AC Milan on loan last season before his move to PSG as sporting director.

Manchester United and PSG face competition from Arsenal, with Unai Emery said to be an admirer of the midfielder and considering handing him another chance in the Premier League.

Bakayoko joined Chelsea for £40m in 2017 from Monaco but struggled for form in his first season at Stamford Bridge. He was heavily criticised by Chelsea fans for his poor performances in his first season as he struggled to adapt to English football.

Bakayoko is currently with the team in Ireland for a preseason training camp.
