Finally gets his man!What's the story? Bakayoko's preparations for the new season have been limited while he has recovered from his operation and he is a long way behind the rest of the Chelsea squad.

As a result, the Blues have the front seat in the pursuit, and they have now finalised a £40m fee with Monaco to secure the midfield enforcer, RMC Sport reveals. But it seems Chelsea will have to make do with landing German defender Antonio Rudiger from Roma in a deal thought to be worth around £34m.

Fans have reacted to Bakayoko's most recent posts in various ways, with many mocking the idea of a move to Manchester as ridiculous.

In case you didn't know.


He's set to partner countryman N'Golo Kante in the heart of Antonio Conte's midfield, with Nemanja Matic heading out of the club. Matic's partnership with Fabregas appeared perfectly balanced and propelled the Blues to the title in his first full season at Stamford Bridge. Mourinho is said to be pushing Ed Woodward to complete the deal as soon as possible.

In fact, recent reports have even claimed that the Red Devils have won the race to sign Bakayoko, stealing a march on the Premier League champions for the Frenchman. Following more delays said to relate to late financial demands from Monaco and issues with various intermediaries, Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo expressed delight that Chelsea had added such a talent to their ranks.

Monaco wished Bakayoko good luck and thanked him for his service.

The London-based club has failed to agree on a new contract with Matic over the past year and a half and are now willing to cash in on their player.

Yet history suggests that when Chelsea splash out on a central midfielder, they generally know what they are doing.

Conte is concerned about the midfielder's knee injury and would hope that he does not miss the start of next season.
