Tiemoue Bakayoko is still keeping his Instagram followers guessing about his future plans.

The France international has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer after an impressive season at AS Monaco.

The 22-year-old was a key part of the Monaco side that managed to beat Paris Saint-Germain to the Ligue 1 title courtesy of a six-point cushion.

Bakayoko impressed in the Champions League – too, as Monaco reached the semi-finals before a 4-2 loss to Serie A giants Juventus.

Premier League champions Chelsea are thought to be favourites to sign the defensive midfielder this summer as Antonio Conte looks to partner the Monaco star with N’Golo Kante.

However, Manchester United have also been linked with a move to recruit the powerful Frenchman in a move that would further antagonise their bitter rivals Chelsea.

Bakayoko, though, looked to be focusing on his Monaco lifestyle with the above video on his Instagram page on Thursday afternoon.

The Chelsea and Manchester United target posted the above video and wrote on the social media website: “Coming soon – 😉💪🏿💪🏿💪🏿#AsMonaco #TB14”

Bakayoko scored three goals in 51 appearances in all competitions last season.
