Bissouma looks a perfect fit for Antonio Conte’s style of football, and should help the club improve next season after they only narrowly snuck into the top four in 2021/22.
Man Utd need to get their act together as there’s surely an argument that Bissouma is the kind of player who would have strengthened them as well, providing an upgrade on unconvincing performers like Scott McTominay and Fred in midfield.
