Chelsea signs Bakayoko from Monaco

Bakayoko has been handed the number 14 shirt for the 2017-18 season after putting pen to paper on a five-year contract.

Chelsea have completed the £40 million (S$71.9 million) signing of midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, but now face competition from Manchester City for another of their close-season targets.

English soccer champions Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco for a fee believed to be £40million.

After undergoing a medical yesterday, Bakayoko secured his move to the Premier League champions today. The team Antonio Conte Bakayoko will replace Nemanja MATIC, who actively marry off in "Manchester United". Bakayoko burst onto the scene with Monaco and now represents France on the worldwide level.

Rudiger, who was a member of his country's Confederations Cup triumph earlier this month, is with the club as they prepare for their preseason tour in China.




"I've played a match with him for the French national team so we know each other very well and I hope we can do attractive things together this year". The deal looked to be good value the day it was announced and proved to be a bargain.

Brazil worldwide Danilo is wanted by both English Premier League football clubs and is expected to cost a minimum of €25 million (S$39.4 million).

The 24-year-old Spanish worldwide is now in Los Angles with Madrid on their pre-season tour and Zinedine Zidane is keen to keep him at the club for next season.

Ramires, signed from Benfica for £18m in the summer of 2010, has one of the more interesting Chelsea legacies. The 28-year-old scored 31 goals in the Bundesliga for Borussia Dortmund last season and since joining Dortmund, he has averaged 30 goals each campaign.
