- The 24-year-old France international is now being wanted by Manchester United
- But Bakayoko is expected to meet new Chelsea coach Frank Lampard on talks about his future
Tiémoue Bakayoko who plays for Premier League giants Chelsea has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target for Manchester United who are said to have contacted the Blues.
Manchester United are now expected to go into transfer tussle with French club Paris-Saint-Germain who are looking for the signature of Bakayoko.
Last season, Bakayoko played for AC Milan on loan and there were reports that the Italian club also wanted his signature on a permanent basis.
His contract at Chelsea will expire in June 2022, and according to RMC Sport, Manchester United will be the only obstacle to block PSG from having Bakayoko.
After failing to win any title last season coupled with their inability to qualify for next season's Champions League, Manchester United boss Ole Solskjaer is bolstering his team.
Solskjaer is facing battle to keep France international Paul Pogba who could be on his way to Real Madrid or Juventus this summer.
And the Norwegian is now reportedly planning to make Bakayoko a replacement should Pogba decides to leave.
Meanwhile, Bakayoko has returned to Chelsea for pre-season and he is expected to meet new Chelsea manager Frank Lampard over talks on his future.

Nwankwo Kanu Reveals Country That Will Win The 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations

Nwankwo Kanu Reveals Country That Will Win The 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations

Arsenal and Super Eagles legend, Nwankwo Kanu has given reasons Nigeria will win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Egypt.
One of Nwankwo Kanu’s reasons was the fact that all of Gernot Rohr’s squad play week in and out in their various clubs – which he described as a “bright future” for the Super Eagles.
“We keep praying that 2019 will be better than 2018. But we have to celebrate our heroes while they’re alive. That reminds us of the late Stephen Keshi, Amodu Shuaibu, Samuel Okwaraji, that’s why the women’s teams seem to complain. Let the ‘female’ teams do better than they have done before in previous World Cups,” Kanu told Brila FM.
“As for the Super Eagles I hope they win the Nations Cup, that’s what I tell people. The players are making me happy – Mikel Obi, Alex Iwobi and others are playing well, that’s why I’m not panicking. I can’t start pinpointing any players’ names. I believe they’re going to win the 2019 Nations Cup.
“The future is bright for the Super Eagles. We have players playing week in and out there in Europe,” Kanu stressed.
Nigeria will tackle Seychelles on March 23 in their last AFCON qualifiers fixture before facing the 2019 AFCON hosts Egypt in a friendly both at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba.
This year’s AFCON will be held from 15 June to 13 July 2019.

Leroy Sane Remains Bayern’s Top Target

Leroy Sane remains Bayern Munich‘s top transfer target this summer despite a recent lack of progress on a deal, according to reports.
According to Reports, the 23-year-old Germany international has reservations on a return to the Bundesliga having left Schalke to join Manchester City in 2016.
It is understood that Bayern‘s other transfer business in the summer window is dependent on whether they can secure a deal to sign LeroySane.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently said the club have yet to make an offer for Sane and will not do so until the player himself gives a signal of intent over his future.
Sane made 46 appearances in all competitions for City in 2018/19, scoring 16 goals, but started just 21 of their 38 Premier League games.
