The Red Devils had an extremely stubborn defence last season and were almost impossible to beat.

Costa, who endured a fractious relationship with Conte last season, is linked to a move back to Atletico Madrid even though the Spanish club cannot register new players until January because of a blanket Fifa transfer ban.

And Neville is surprised to see Chelsea actually considering selling the 28-year-old this summer.

Tactically speaking, the failure to get Bakayoko would also be crushing.

He has since deleted the Chelsea training ground snap, and later posted two Tweets Friday night that indicate his Chelsea move is now off, with a return to Monaco in the cards.

Chelsea are understandably reluctant to do business with a direct rival but the Daily Mail claim that United are willing to offer Matic a lucrative long-term contract if he makes the move to Old Trafford.

Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko will soon undergo a Chelsea medical after a deal has been agreed between both clubs. Pedro and Hazard may start wide. but the wing backs allow them to wreak havoc in central areas.

He will be expected to partner his compatriot N'golo Kante in Chelsea's midfielder as they look to defend their Premier League title and compete in the Champions League.

It is why Cesc Fabregas was mostly a bit part player last season.

"I pity Bakayoko - Chelsea refused, United hesitated - he made calls everywhere, he himself contacted Liverpool, too", it says.

Manchester United are set to outbid Chelsea by offering more than £40m for Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Inter Milan have also shown interest in the leggy midfield ace but the size of his salary could be an issue for the Italian giants.

Morata is keen to play for the manager and told The Guardian that Conte had given him self-belief. "You're trolling us all the time!".
