Manchester United are set for big changes, according to the latest transfer rumours.
The 25-year-old enjoyed a terrific World Cup campaign in Russian Federation as he helped France lift their second World Cup following a number of inspired midfield performances alongside Chelsea's N'Golo Kante. "It is important after the World Cup to work, but also come back with the team and live with the team to find again the atmosphere of the club and the squad".
Although, the Blues have offered the World Cup victor a contract remain at Stamford Bridge ahead of the 2018/2019 term.

The World Meteorological Organisation said Europe's record is 48C in Athens, Greece in 1977. In the south of England there could be five days in a row with temperatures over 30C.
The pocket-sized 27-year-old dynamo ― who recovered the ball more often than any other team-mate during the finals in Russian Federation ― will earn £290,000 (RM1.5 million) a week if he signs the new deal, reported The Times and the London Evening Standard.
Despite a strong World Cup performance that saw him score three goals in Russian Federation, the defender has been pushed further down the Barca depth chart with the arrival of Clement Lenglet. Just goes to show how highly having 15 lungs (Didier Deschamps©) is valued in the Premier League in this day and age.
The 23-year-old cost Barca just £11.5m a few months ago, but they now hope to net nearly four times that amount after slapping a £40m valuation on him as Mourinho gets desperate in his hunt for reinforcements in central defence.
There is a belief among United staff though that a bid for the 25-year old should have gone in before his impressive World Cup campaign with England.
