It is understood Tiémoué Bakayoko has already agreed personal terms with Chelsea, despite his agent and brother has admitted that the Monaco midfielder would love a summer move to Paris Saint-Germain.
“We’ve talked about it because Tiemoue is Parisian, – Bakayoko’s brother told RMC – When he was young, he wanted to go to PSG. He’s always dreamed of moving there”.
“When I asked him to imagine that he’d move to PSG one day, he told me ‘I’d honestly like that. If they were to offer me a deal, I don’t see why I would refuse it.”
Anyway, the Premier League leaders are said to be ready to place a huge bid to to snatch the Frencman from competitors.
Also Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for AS Monaco defender Benjamin Mendy.
