According to reports (RMC Sport), Manchester United are very interested in signing Tiemoue Bakayoko and they have already contacted Chelsea to hire his services.
The renowned French outlet have claimed that the likes of Arsenal and French champions PSG are looking to sign the former Ligue 1 player as well.
At the moment, Matic is our first choice defensive midfielder. The Serbian international was inconsistent last season and failed to provide a solid cover in front of the back four.
The former Benfica star will turn 31 next month, he is slow and past his best and in my view, Solskjaer should sell and replace him.
As far as Bakayoko is concerned, the Les Bleus midfielder was impressive for Monaco in their title winning 2016-17 campaign.
In 2017, Chelsea hired his services when Italian boss Antonio Conte was in charge of the club. The French international arrived to replace Matic at Stamford Bridge but after a torrid season, he was loaned out to AC Milan last year.
Last season, the £110,000-a-week (The Star) player was solid in the holding midfield role for AC Milan, who finished 5th in the table. In 26 league starts, Bakayoko helped the Rossoneri keep 12 clean sheets. Moreover, the seven time European champions had the third best defensive record in the Serie A.
Now, the 24-year-old midfielder has returned to the London based club, who have recently appointed a new manager in the form of Frank Lampard and a decision on his future will be made soon (RMC Sport).
