Jose Mourinho Interested In Signing Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko 

share on:

Manchester United are locked in a battle to sign Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to the Daily Mirror.

The report suggests Jose Mourinho has identified the 22-year-old as his top midfield target in this transfer window.

However, it is thought Manchester City and Chelsea are also admirers of the France U21 international.

Monaco value Bakayoko at a minimum of 25m euros.

Monaco have sold well in recent years, exploiting competing interest in Anthony Martial to secure a potential record fee of €80m from United for Bakayoko’s compatriot.

Mourinho is working on a medium-term plan to rebuild United’s squad into one capable of competing at the top table of the European game by adding four or five high-quality acquisitions.

A €6m buy from Stade Rennais three summers ago, Bakayoko established himself in Monaco’s first team last season
