Tiemoue Bakayoko arrives at Cobham to finalise £40m Chelsea deal

But Bakayoko had already given the game away to fans on Instagram as his latest story showed him leaving a hotel in Chelsea.

There had been speculation Manchester United might try and stymie the bid for Bakayoko - who made his senior worldwide debut earlier this year - just as they did with Lukaku, as they broke the record for a deal between British clubs of £75m to prise him away from Everton on Monday.

MailOnline's Amitai Winehouse reported the Blues believe they'll win the race despite reports the Red Devils are willing to meet Monaco's £40 million (plus add-ons) valuation of the player, while Chelsea have only offered £37 million.


Manchester United fans were left confused by the news that Barcelona winger Pedro will be signing for Chelsea, after it seemed for the past month that deal to bring the Spaniard to Old Trafford was imminent.

Ronaldinho was part of the successful Brazil squad at the 2002 World Cup and also played for Paris Saint-Germain and Milan. The Blues are in the market for an attacker and have turned their attention to other strikers after failing to sign the Belgian.

The Sun says the 22-year-old chose to leave the Premier League champions in order to further his career. However, Real want £70 million for the Spanish striker.


"I feel indebted to him because he's the coach that most trusted in me, most wanted me, who made me feel I could perform at the highest level", Morata said in April.

Danilo is expected to take the place of Victor Moses, who was one of the surprise stand out players in the Premier League last season.

Nathaniel Chalobah is set to have contract talks with Antonio Conte over the next fortnight according to various reports.


The arrival of the second French midfielder in two years is likely to reduce Matic to a bit part role and thus, he is likely to leave Chelsea this summer.
