Manchester United and Liverpool make enquiries for Monaco midfielder and Chelsea target Tiemoue Bakayoko

Manchester United and Liverpool have made enquiries for Chelsea target Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The Monaco midfielder is expected to move to Stamford Bridge as the Premier League champions prepare a £40million offer for the 22-year-old.

However, United, Liverpool and Paris St Germain have all made enquiries via his representatives.

The France international would be interested in a move to Old Trafford should he fail to reach agreement with Chelsea.

Like many of Europe’s elite clubs, United have taken a keen interest in Monaco’s squad with Bernardo Silva, Fabinho and Kylian Mbappe also on their summer wishlist.

Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic is another option for United’s midfield while a move for Eric Dier at Tottenham has been discussed but deemed unlikely.

Monaco’s 23-year-old Brazilian Fabinho is also wanted by Manchester City while Real Madrid have pushed for Mbappe.

Monaco have already lined up Youri Tielemans from Anderlecht as a replacement for Bakayoko.

They are also offering contract extemsions to Radamel Falcao and Mbappe.
