Manchester United haven’t made an offer to rival Chelsea for the signature of Monaco star Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to reports in England.

Sky Sports is reporting that Manchester United have no interest in signing the 22-year-old despite recent transfer speculation suggesting the Red Devils could hijack another of their rivals’ transfer targets.

The same article states that Jose Mourinho isn’t interested in signing Bakayoko and the Manchester United boss has other players in mind to improve his midfield options ahead of the 2017-18 season.

Chelsea suffered the embarrassment of missing out on Everton striker Romelu Lukaku earlier this week despite the Belgium international being heavily linked with a move back to Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United managed to conclude a £75m deal to sign the Belgian forward from Everton to leave Antonio Conte disappointed with his employers’ failure to sign a top target.

French midfielder Bakayoko played a key role in helping AS Monaco to win Ligue 1 title and reach the Champions League semi-finals in the 2016-17 season.

Chelsea won the Premier League title in their first season under Conte.
