Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho could trump Chelsea twice in a week as he eyes off Monaco star Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The Daily Mail says Chelsea boss Antonio Conte’s move for Bakayoko has stalled and is now unlikely to go through.
Monaco are frustrated at Chelsea’s slow business and wish to sell the midfielder as soon as possible.
It is understood that if Manchester United are unable to sign Serbia international Nemanja Matic they will move for Bakayoko.
This would be another blow to Conte’s summer transfer plan to strengthen his title winning side.
