Monaco have reportedly set a price for the sale of Tiemoué Bakayoko in case European clubs go for him in the next summer. As reported in France Football (via Footmercato), the French side will ask for at least €60m to let the player go.
This should be a warning for Manchester United, Chelsea and Juventus as all of them have been recently linked to the Bakayoko.
And if clubs consider him too expensive now, they better not wait for his price to drop. That’s because Monaco are planning to renew the player’s contract soon, which could raise the figures even more.
Last month, we at Sport Witness have made a list of four Monaco players who Manchester United should keep an eye for the next transfer windows. And Bakayoko was obviously there.
The player has been able to control the French team’s midfield by making important interceptions and immediately connecting it to the attack, being one of the secrets of the club’s recent success.
However, at the time, we guessed he’d cost Manchester United a little over £30m. It seems whoever wants him will have to pay more now, at least if Monaco get their way.
