Chelsea would still consider selling Nemanja Matic to Manchester United this summer if the English champions sign AS Monaco star Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to reports in England.

Sky Sports is reporting that the Premier League champions would still be open to selling Matic to their bitter rivals despite Manchester United beating Chelsea to the £75m signing of Romelu Lukaku earlier this week.

The same article states that the Blues want to conclude a deal to sign Bakayoko from Ligue 1 champions AS Monaco before allowing Matic to leave Stamford Bridge in the current transfer window.

However, according to the same story, Serie A giants Inter Milan are also interested in signing Matic and the Italian club are willing to offer in the region of £40m for the 28-year-old.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is also keen on Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Eric Dier, according to Sky Sports.

The Red Devils have signed Sweden international Victor Lindelof from Portuguese champions Benfica and Everton striker Lukaku in the summer so far.
