- Tiemoue Bakayoko could break Chelsea fans fan as he is close to joining Manchester United
- The AS Monaco man was initially set to join the Blues but United have hijacked the deal
- Bakayoko was a key part of the Monaco team that beat PSG to the Ligue 1 title last season
Chelsea could have their hands burned twice in a week after reports emerged that their deal for Tiemoue Bakayoko has been hijacked by Manchester United.
The Daily Star reports that the Red Devils have agreed a £35million deal to hijack Chelsea’s move for the AS Monaco midfielder.
Bakayoko was all set to join Chelsea after Antonio Conte identified him as the man to replace Nemanja Matic who would be joining Manchester United.
However, Manchester United look to have turned the tables with Bakayoko set to join compatriot Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.
If the AS Monaco man signs, he will become the second man after Romelu Lukaku to dump the Blues for Jose Mourinho's side.
Bakayoko was a key part of the Monaco team that beat PSG to the Ligue 1 title last season.
He also helped the team reach the semi-finals of the Champions League as he made 46 appearances for Leonardo Jardim’s side.
