Missing out on Tiemoue Bakayoko would be disastrous — Chelsea

Tiemoue Bakayoko

They claim that the midfielder will jet into England this week to complete his medical before finalising a deal to become only Chelsea's third summer signing. The Red Devils had an extremely stubborn defence last season and were almost impossible to beat.

Soon-to-be Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has revealed that Brazil legend Ronaldinho is the player that he looked up to the most when he was younger. This 22-year-old capped 63 appearances for Monaco and scored three goals, while he also debuted for the French international team in the friendly game against Spain.

L'Equipe blame it all on the 'negligence and flippancy' of the player's entourage.

Tactically speaking, the failure to get Bakayoko would also be crushing. Pedro and Hazard may start wide. but the wing backs allow them to wreak havoc in central areas.

United's interest is another unwelcome development for Chelsea, who may hope their rivals are simply trying to gain leverage in their stalled bid to lure Nemanja Matic from Stamford Bridge.

It is why Cesc Fabregas was mostly a bit part player last season.

And there's more bad news for the Blues with the Daily Star reporting that Alex Sandro is "unsure if he wants to join the Premier League champions".

The Monaco man apparently requires an operation which would count him out of action for between 8 to 10 weeks, for an ongoing problem that he has been suffering since February.

And on Friday morning, Bakayoko added fuel to the flames by tweeting a good morning message to fans with his location set to Manchester. This might have excited both Chelsea and Manchester United fans as it is still unknown where Bakayoko is heading.
