Gossip: Man United to hijack another Chelsea transfer?

The offer Chelsea would like to make is £55-60 million up front followed by £10m, £5m and £5m the following years.

Bakayoko's likely arrival is expected to push Nemanja Matic to Manchester United, where he would join up with former boss Jose Mourinho. With Diego Costa soon leaving on a loan to Turkey before his eventual transfer to Atletico Madrid the only players that we have on the books are Loic Remy, who will be out hopefully within the week, the 18-year-old Kylian Mbappe and the Man, the Myth, the Michy.

You've had to do at least one week's Sunday shop, gone out to dinner in the neighborhood and experienced life a little bit longer than would be a typical vacation. He has also shown he can be deployed as more of a box-to-box midfielder, playing in a structured 4-4-2 for a successful Monaco last season.

Bakayoko has developed in to one of the best midfielders in France since joining Monaco in 2014 from Rennes and he played a key role in helping Leonardo Jardim's side clinch the Ligue 1 title last year.

Both the Independent and the Daily Mail have similar lines on the England international, with Tottenham insistent that Dier is not for sale.

After rumours of a medical in late June, Chelsea were tipped to formally announce the Bakayoko deal when the transfer window officially opened on 1st July, but no such reveal was forthcoming.

The topic we're here to discuss is one I know he doesn't want to. That is transfer speak for 'move on'.

The papers in London have been going on about the amount of money we've spent in the past couple of days.

Manchester United potentially swooping and signing Tiemoué Bakayoko from under Chelsea's noses is a story sure to get a lot of attention, especially after Romelu Lukaku's switch. New Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer wants to sign out-of-favour Barcelona centre-back Thomas Vermaelen.

Woodward told Manchester United's website: "Wayne has been a fantastic servant to United since the moment he signed for us as a prodigiously talented, explosive teenager some 13 seasons ago". Read into that what you will. Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, 28, will be allowed to join Paris St-Germain or Bayern Munich - but not Premier League rivals Manchester City...
