Juventus Vow To Try For Manchester United Target Nemanja Matic

He commented a post on Twitter which claimed that he will move to Old Trafford.

But there is a puzzle with his tweet - the message lists his location as Manchester, not London.

Chelsea announced on Friday that Brazilian midfielder Lucas Piazon has signed a two-year contract extension ahead of another loan move to Fulham.

And on Friday morning, Bakayoko added fuel to the flames by tweeting a good morning message to fans with his location set to Manchester.

But, according to L'Equipe, the 22-year-old will not be present with a transfer to Stamford Bridge now said to be close to completion.

Inter Milan want Matic and are prepared to pay up to £35m.

Neville is, however, of the opinion that United need more cover and feels Matic, as a proven Premier League performer, would tick all of the boxes.

Lukaku banged in 53 Premiership goals in 104 games for a pretty mediocre Everton side, and that is better than one every other game.

Yesterday, we covered a report (via Emanuele Giulianelli) claiming that Monaco star Fabinho wants to join the Red Devils.

Chelsea's offer stands at £35 million, a figure they had been unwilling to go beyond due to concerns over a knee injury that required keyhole surgery last month and could yet force Bakayoko to miss the opening weeks of the new campaign.

Bakayoko was one of the most prominent players in Monaco's campaign last season and helped them to the French Ligue 1 title and the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

As a result, the Blues have the front seat in the pursuit, and they have now finalised a £40m fee with Monaco to secure the midfield enforcer, RMC Sport reveals.

Bakayoko's social media has been littered with hints about his impending move, and this will surely endear him to fans of his new club who are disappointed about losing home grown talent like Nat Chalobah in recent days.
