Chelsea strike £39.7m deal to sign Tiémoué Bakayoko from Monaco

Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko to add steel that Matic lost after the 2014/15 campaign

Nathaniel Chalobah has been sold to Watford creating space for Bakayoko in the squad that also has N'Golo Kante, Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic.

Bakayoko then tweeted again, this time posting red and white circles with two love hearts, again from Manchester.

The 22-year-old was at the heart of Monaco's midfield in their UEFA Champions League semi-final run and Ligue 1 triumph last season and now it looks as though he will be a Chelsea player shortly.

Belotti's price tag may scupper any deal for the young Italian but Alvaro Morata could easily become a Stamford Bridge favourite over the next few years.

Chelsea have reportedly agreed a £40m deal for AS Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko. "Now he needs one manager that will make him a big player".

Matic is said to be afraid for his first team place amidst reports of an impending move for Monaco midfielder, Tiemoue Bakayoko who is expected to sign the dotted lines.

The Belgian striker had been heavily linked to a return back to his former side before Manchester United stole a march on the Blues at the last moment.

"He's good, he needs time and he needs to learn also in the Premier League, as it's not easy the Premier League".

Lukaku isn't the only example of Chelsea shooting themselves in the foot when selling young players.

Manchester United fans were left confused by the news that Barcelona winger Pedro will be signing for Chelsea, after it seemed for the past month that deal to bring the Spaniard to Old Trafford was imminent.

Chelsea had earlier announced the signing of German youngster Antonio Rudiger from Roma. However, Real want £70 million for the Spanish striker.

Antonio Conte had been ready to hand over £60m in readies to Juventus but the South American stopper, who arrived in Turin in 2015 from Porto, is having second thoughts about relocating to England.
