Bakayoko set to sign five-year Chelsea contract on Saturday

Bakayoko set to sign five-year Chelsea contract on Saturday

Bakayoko was reportedly set for a move to Chelsea, but if Manchester United pull the plug on them once again, it will be a sad picture in the Blues' camp. While not quite the player he is for Bayern today, Robben was a big player for Chelsea, and Fergie would surely have loved to have had him at Old Trafford.

Chelsea won the Premier League title in their first season under Conte after finishing seven points clear of closest rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

The AS Monaco star arrived at Chelsea's Cobham training ground ahead of a reported £40m summer move to the Premier League champions.

"Final agreement reached between AS Monaco and Chelsea FC for Bakayoko [for] ~€45m!"

But despite Bakayoko's potential absence at the start of the season, Nemanja Matic is desperate to force his way out of Chelsea.




Chelsea target Tiemoue Bakayoko was quick to delete a tweet in which he seemed to suggest that he will join Manchester United.

United are known to be interested in him but it will be a surprise if he does not end up at Stamford Bridge.

The Independent: United are expected to complete a deal worth between £45m and £50m for Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic within the next week.

Bakayoko was set to sign his five-year contract last night but late complications halted the move. With the likes of Marcelo Brozovic and Geoffrey Kondogbia blowing hot and cold last season, Matic is just the kind of quality midfielder who can add solidity to Luciano Spalletti's side.

After weeks of speculation about the transfer, news that the 22-year-old is Stamford Bridge-bound hardly comes as a surprise - especially not to numerous Manchester United supporters that saw the Mail's tweet about it on Thursday.
