Manchester United have enquired about the possibility of signing Tiemoue Bakayoko.
However, the Frenchman failed to establish himself at the Stamford Bridge outfit in his debut season, and was subsequently sent out on loan to AC Milan by Maurizio Sarri last summer.
Now, the midfielder has returned to London for pre-season, and he will look to impress new boss Frank Lampard. But as per latest reports emerging from France, he might not get the chance to do so.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be “very interested” in the 24-year-old, who could be brought in to strengthen the midfield department at Old Trafford, especially with Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic linked with summer departures.
However, Lampard is expected to have the final say in the matter, and his judgement will determine where Bakayoko plies his trade next season.
