Chelsea sign midfielder Bakayoko from Monaco

Bakayoko made his global debut in a friendly defeat by Spain in March, and will team up with compatriot N'Golo Kante in the Chelsea midfield.

Chelsea have confirmed the signing of France global Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco.

Shaka Hislop believes that Tiemoue Bakayoko would complement N'Golo Kante quite well in Chelsea's midfield.

CHELSEA have confirmed the signing of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco. While Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic had their fair share of chances, neither managed to convince Conte enough and the signing of Bakayoko seems to make that quite clear.

Chelsea have been in talks with Monaco for weeks over a move for the France worldwide and they are on the verge of getting the deal over the line.

Nemanja Matic would "fit the bill" for Manchester United if the Red Devils can sign the defensive midfielder from Chelsea, according to Gary Neville.

Chelsea's Champions League triumph in 2012 helped them to win the race for one of the most sought-after talents in European football, with the Belgian playmaker arriving from Lille. The deal looked to be good value the day it was announced and proved to be a bargain.

The Belgium hasn't had much of an impact at Stamford Bridge since joining from Marseille last summer, but at least he knows how to cause a stir on social media.

The Daily Mail suggest that despite interest from Inter Milan, Matic wants to push through a move to Manchester United and reunite with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

Bakayoko has a market transfer value of £40million, a fee that the Blues are ready to pay.
