Manchester United are once again in the midst of a bidding war with Chelsea, and the Blues fans here in the Transfer Tavern are getting fed up of Mourinho always sneaking ahead.
Jose Mourinho’s side managed to get the upper hand over the Blues after snatching Romelu Lukaku last week.
And the Red Devils are once again living up to the nickname after reportedly planning to swoop in for Monaco’s Timeoue Bakayoko.
Antonio Conte’s side were expected to complete a deal for the central-midfielder in the coming days, but the Express claim that Manchester United are now readying a £40m bid for the player.
Mourinho’s side appear to have backtracked on signing Nemanja Matic, despite the Chelsea midfielder suggested to have agreed personal terms at Old Trafford.
After a quiet post-season, Bakayoko could be the second coup in a matter of days for United.
If a deal for Bakayoko fails to materialise, Manchester United fans down in the Transfer Tavern have another signing in mind and also have an idea as to who Mourinho should wield the axe on….Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
