Bakayoko On His Way To Stamford Bridge - £40m Fee Agreed!

Danilo's time at Real Madrid is coming to a close with Chelsea interested in the defender

Danilo's time at Real Madrid is coming to a close with Chelsea interested in the defender

United do have an interest in signing Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic as well as Tottenham's Eric Dier.

Chelsea however, are open to Matic leaving the country instead of signing to a direct rival, not excluding United.

Whether Bakayoko signs for United remains to be seen, with Chelsea supporters sure to be waiting with bated breath until a deal is pushed over the line.

The Belgian striker had been heavily linked to a return back to his former side before Manchester United stole a march on the Blues at the last moment.

Bakayoko, a midfielder with Monaco, was at Chelsea's Cobham training ground today to undergo his medical and finalize his approximately £40 million move.

Chelsea will undoubtedly be strong in both defence and midfield next season, but they require a top-class striker to fire them up the Premier League table.

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte and indeed Blues faithful felt "betrayed" by Romelu Lukaku after the Everton forward opted to join Manchester United over Chelsea.

One angry supporter added: "Go to Manchester since you wanna be childish with your teasers".

Just as the long and winding Tiemoue Bakayoko summer transfer saga seemed to be finishing up, it took yet another turn.

If he does join Mourinho's Red Army, then this will be the second time this summer that the Mancunian club will snatch a player from right under Chelsea's nose.

United are known to be interested in him but it will be a surprise if he does not end up at Stamford Bridge.

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.

Jose Mourinho: Zlatan Ibrahimovic could return to Manchester United
He netted 28 goals in 46 appearances for Manchester United last season before succumbing to a keen injury in March. The 35-year-old is no longer a United player with his contract finishing after just one year.
