Mourinho to wait before Chelsea star can join United

15 July 2017, 08:43 | Jodi Jackson

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Manchester United were interested in signing Alvaro Morata this summer but that the Red Devils could not agree a fee with Real Madrid. The Premier League champions have overcome a late Manchester United charge for the AS Monaco midfielder to secure the services of the player this summer.

Chelsea have announced the signing of midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco.

He is Conte's second signing of the transfer window following the capture of Germany defender Antonio Rudiger from Roma and is set to join France team-mate N'Golo Kante in central midfield.

The 22-year-old underwent keyhole surgery to clean out one of his knees at the end of the French domestic season and is in rehabilitation.

The 22-year-old, who has signed a five-year deal, is expected to line up alongside fellow France worldwide N'Golo Kante next season.

Clearly, the news didn't go down too well with the Premier League champions, with Antonio Conte reportedly frustrated that the player had chosen to go to United.


Last week Chelsea were left reeling from the news that Romelu Lukaku had signed for United rather than return to Stamford Bridge, and the Mail says this latest humiliation has "stunned" Chelsea.

Chelsea's technical director Michael Emenalo also commented on the purchase: 'Tiemoue was outstanding as Monaco emerged as one of Europe's best sides last season and we are delighted to welcome him to Chelsea.

This 22-year-old capped 63 appearances for Monaco and scored three goals, while he also debuted for the French global team in the friendly game against Spain.

However, as the weeks have passed the talk of a move from Chelsea looked to have quietened down but now it seems that a move could be back on.

Antonio Conte targeted Bakayoko as their first choice option to strengthen their midfield and they are now expected to allow Nemanja Matic to leave to make room for the France worldwide.
