Juventus Vow To Try For Manchester United Target Nemanja Matic

Juventus Vow To Try For Manchester United Target Nemanja Matic

After the Serbian international's contract negotiations with Chelsea stalled in the past few months, he expressed his desire to leave the club where he has since been training on his own at the club's Cobham base.

The France global joined Monaco in 2014 and he was integral to helping the club beat rivals Paris Saint-Germain to the Ligue 1 title last season.

Bakayoko was reportedly set for a move to Chelsea, but if Manchester United pull the plug on them once again, it will be a sad picture in the Blues' camp.

Bakayoko's preparations for the new season have been limited while he has recovered from his operation and he is a long way behind the rest of the Chelsea squad.

Matic joined Chelsea from Benfica back in 2014 and has made over 100 appearances for the club since moving to England.

It is understood the Blues would be willing to listen to offers for Matic once the deal for Bakayoko goes through but would prefer to sell him to a foreign club rather than a Premier League rival.

Costa has yet to return to pre-season training and is now in Brazil.

After missing out on Lukaku, Conte's search for a striker to succeed Costa goes on, but he seems to have already identified the midfielder to succeed Matic.

The 22-year-old was at the heart of Monaco's midfield in their UEFA Champions League semi-final run and Ligue 1 triumph last season and now it looks as though he will be a Chelsea player shortly. The first man to arrive at Stamford Bridge this summer was Willy Caballero on a free transfer, before Antonio Rudiger arrived from Roma last week.

Chelsea will be hoping to push through the transfer of the left-sided Sandro after the departure of Nathan Ake to Bournemouth and the transfer of Nathaniel Chalobah to Watford.

RMC says the midfielder will complete his medical this Friday ahead of completing his switch.

And according to the London Evening Standard's Simon Johnson, Chelsea have begun talks with Inter over a potential £34m deal for the 28-year-old.
