Diego Costa, Nemanja Matic given permission to miss Chelsea pre-season tour

Some media reports are linking United with a late bid to hijack the deal but it is understood he is not a target for Jose Mourinho. With Matic now having just two years left on his contract, Chelsea are now prepared to let him leave.

The Premier League champions have been strongly linked with making a move for the French midfielder but the deal has stalled in recent weeks.

The 22-year old may push out Matic out of Chelsea with the Serbian determined to leave the Blues this summer. So I think United do need a holding midfield player.

However, a News18 channel said the arrests were made in connection with Amarnath Yatra terror attack case. So far, over 1.40 lakh pilgrims have reached the cave shrine located at 3,888 metres above sea-level.

One player definitely heading for the Stamford Bridge exit is Nathan Chalobah.

United already beat Chelsea to the £75 million signing of former Blue Romelu Lukaku this summer, and the west Londoners won't want to be disappointed in their pursuit for another key target.

Both Costa and Matic have always been touted with a move this summer after being considered surplus to requirements by Conte, with Atletico Madrid and Juventus the front-runners for the duo respectively.

Therefore, Chelsea are now unwilling to do business with the Red Devils, paving the way for Matic's other suitors to storm into the lead. When he arrived in London on Thursday, Bakayoko was met by Kia Joorabchian, who took him out for dinner with Willian and David Luiz.

Costa, who endured a fractious relationship with Conte last season, is linked to a move back to Atletico Madrid even though the Spanish club can not register new players until January because of a blanket Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer ban. There is strong interest in him from Manchester United, while Inter and Juventus are possible options as well. The player though, is unlikely to have a future at Chelsea considering the imminent arrival of Bakayoko.
