Tiemoue Bakayoko rejected Man United for the same reason as N’Golo Kante

TIEMOUE BAKAYOKO has revealed why he chose Chelsea over Manchester United.

The Monaco star is set to complete his signing with the Premier League champions next week.
And he picked London over the north because he wants to work with Antonio Conte more than Jose Mourinho.

The France midfielder was targeted by both clubs this summer but is poised to commit to the Blues for five years in a £35million deal.

And it turns out that Bakayoko – who is set to join N’Golo Kante in the Chelsea midfield – followed his international team-mate in more ways than one.

Kante turned down the advances of Mourinho last summer despite receiving a personal call from the Special One.

And L’Equipe claim Conte’s influence was decisive in Bakayoko picking the champs.

Kante said at the time of his arrival at Chelsea: “It was amazing to have Mourinho call me, even though I’d been warned before how he would appeal to me.

“I listened to his arguments about why I should move to United.

“But at that time I was hesitant between staying at Leicester or leaving for Chelsea.

“My discussions with them were already well underway.

“But when I spoke, I had a good feeling with Conte.”
