Chelsea complete signing of Monaco's Bakayoko

Chelsea complete signing of Monaco's Bakayoko

Monaco swiftly moved for Soualiho Meite and signed him as the replacement for Bakayoko.

The 22-year-old, who has signed a five-year deal, is expected to line up alongside fellow France worldwide N'Golo Kante next season. In a Twitter post that has since been deleted, the 22-year old wished his followers "Good Morning" but changed his location to Manchester, England.

In the mean time, Bakayoko appears to be settling in to life in London well. The tweet was later deleted.

Craig Burley assesses the potential signings of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alex Sandro and how they could shape Chelsea in the coming season.

Costa, who endured a fractious relationship with Conte last season, is linked to a move back to Atletico Madrid even though the Spanish club can not register new players until January because of a blanket Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer ban.

Nemanja Matic is "desperate" to leave Chelsea this summer.

According to some of the press, United had "hijacked" Chelsea's Lukaku move, even though it was also claimed that United had been quietly working on the deal for weeks.

Manchester United were reportedly interested in signing him but AS Monaco were not ready to listen to their offers.

He went on to say the Blues were starting to ask themselves a few questions about the whole deal, as they hadn't been given a reason by Monaco for the delay, but tried to reassure everyone by saying everything could change in an instant.

One player definitely heading for the Stamford Bridge exit is Nathan Chalobah.

"I am very happy to be here and to join this great team".

The 28-year-old played a key role in helping the Blues win the title in 2015 and it seems Mourinho believes he's the man to protect his back four and form an exciting midfield alongside Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba next season.

Ramires, signed from Benfica for £18m in the summer of 2010, has one of the more interesting Chelsea legacies.

The France global played a key role as Leonardo Jardim's underdogs battled their way to the Champions League semi-finals.

The signing will be a boost for Antonio Conte, who has been frustrated by problems in the transfer market to this point.
