Tiemoue Bakayoko
The 22-year-old midfielder is expected to join Chelsea on Friday but he gave the Red Devils fans a glimmer of hope of beating the Blues to him

If Tiemoue Bakayoko has made anything clear in recent weeks, it is that he is a master of suspense.

The Monaco star has long-been expected to make a big move to the Premier League this summer with Chelsea leading the race to sign him, but still nothing has been confirmed.

The midfielder is set bring an end to a long transfer saga to make a £40 million move from the Ligue 1 champions to Chelsea after all parties finally reached an agreement.

However, Manchester United were also said to have had an interest in the 22-year-old and there had been reports they were planning a late bid for him.

On Friday morning, Bakayoko only increased the glimmer of hope the Red Devils fans had of beating the Blues to his signing. 

He posted a tweet consisting only of red and white emojis, with the location stating he was in Manchester at the time.

He quickly deleted it, but it is unknown if he made a mistake or was just trolling, but he did wind up a few fans.

He didn't fool everyone, though, as it had been noted he had already enjoyed a night with some of his new Chelsea team-mates.
