Manchester United, Chelsea and Everton are all interested in the signing of French youngster Tiemoue Bakayoko, reports talkSPORT

According to sources in France, the Premier League trio all sent scouts to watch the starlet during Rennes' victory against Saint-Etienne this past week. 

The 19-year-old, who made his breakthrough in the first team earlier this season, is valued at around £350,000.

And as Manchester United look to improve their options in the middle of the park, they could be set to bring the star to Old Trafford as they look ahead to the long term.

However, if David Moyes is to bring Bakayoko to the Theatre of Dreams, then he will have to battle with his former side Everton for the player's signature. 

The Manchester United boss may also have to go head-to-head with Jose Mourinho, as the Chelsea boss looks to bring Bakayoko to Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Everton could soon step up their interest in the youngster in the near future.
