Bakayoko Dines Out With Chelsea Teammates In London And Is Set To Complete Move In 24 Hours
Tiemoue Bakayoko was welcomed by some of his fellow Chelsea team-mates as he went out for dinner in London with David Luiz and Willian.
The Brazilian helped Chelsea’s imminent signing to explore the night-life in London as they went out for dinner with him at the lavish Mayfair, before heading towards Novikov.
Premier League champions Chelsea have finally agreed in principle with AS Monaco over a £40m transfer fee for signing Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The Blues bosses have been trying to seal the deal for weeks and now finally they have reached an agreement with Ligue 1 champions Monaco.
The Monaco superstar has all but confirmed his switch to Chelsea, with the Blues set to officially announce the signing today.
The French defensive midfielder is undergoing a medical and the Premier League champions will splurge £40million plus add-ons for securing the signatures of the 22-year-old Monaco man.
Earlier reports had claimed that Mourinho was all set to hijack the French midfielder from under the noses of the Blues, but Bakayoko has opted for a switch to Chelsea instead.
On Friday morning, Bakayoko played foul with the emotions of the Manchester United fans by tweeting red and white emojis with two love hearts, and his location set in Manchester, to hint that he is set to join the Red Devils, despite him staying in London. But, later he deleted the tweet.
Earlier, on Thursday night, the French star engaged in a conversation with new Blues team-mate Michy Batshuayi on Twitter, answering questions on whether he has already signed a deal with Chelsea.
The teasing conversation involved the use of a lot of emojis and hinted that a move to Chelsea was on the verge of completion.
His arrival at the Stamford Bridge would see Nemanja Matic leaving the club with Manchester United in pole position to rope him in.
It is also understood that Nathaniel Chalobah will be offloaded as Watford have shown huge interest in securing his signatures.
Conte wants to add reinforcements in key areas before the start of the new season and Bakayoko will now become Chelsea’s second major signing this summer following Antonio Rudiger and a back-up goalkeeper Willy Caballero.
And now Bakayoko is expected to join the Blues squad on their pre-season tour to China and Singapore.
He landed in London on Thursday and had posted pictures of his journey on the Eurostar from France to London.
