If reports from French outlet RMC Sport are to be believed, Manchester United have made a shock enquiry about Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Solskjaer is apparently looking to bolster his midfield after the departures of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera.

Bakayoko joined Chelsea for £40m in 2017 as a replacement for Nemanja Matic, who joined Manchester United back then. However, the Frenchman endured a forgettable debut season at the Stamford Bridge and was shipped off to AC Milan on loan.

Having resuscitated his career in Italy, the 23-year-old is now back with the Chelsea squad for their pre-season. According to reports, Bakayoko will have a fresh chance of impressing Frank Lampard this season.

United aren’t the only interested party in the midfield enforcer, with Paris Saint Germain also regarded as firm favourites for his signature.
