Chelsea closed the deal on Bakayoko

Chelsea closed the deal on Bakayoko

Chelsea's failed attempt to re-sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton certainly caused plenty of consternation among Blues supporters who took to social media in droves to voice frustration and angst at an outcome that saw the Belgium global shun Stamford Bridge in favour of Old Trafford, Manchester United, and a curious reunification with former boss Jose Mourinho.

The brother of Monaco star Tiemoue Bakayoko has hinted he's joining Chelsea.

As per same report, the 28-year-old Serbian has been the subject of a transfer chase by Jose Mourinho who is keen on reuniting with his former player, and has set his sights on a £40m deal.

Goal say Monaco vice president Vadim Vasilyev raised his asking price at the last minute.

Now Juventus are set to offer Chelsea the chance to offload the midfielder to a club overseas, according to Sky Italia, something which will be a more palatable option for Blues fans.

Arsenal make record £123m bid for Mpabbe
Wenger has already offered Monaco £87 million (R1.4 billion) for the France worldwide , but that bid was rejected a few weeks ago. Kylian Mbappe made a big announcement via social media, but it left Real Madrid and Arsenal fans disappointed.

Mourinho is in the market for a long-term replacement for Michael Carrick and the "Special One" is looking to sign Matic for the second time after being the man to lure the midfielder back to Chelsea in 2014.

Chelsea target Tiemoue Bakayoko was quick to delete a tweet in which he seemed to suggest that he will join Manchester United.

"He's good, he needs time and he needs to learn also in the Premier League, as it's not easy the Premier League".

Bakayoko has worked on his own while he has been waiting to complete his Chelsea switch, but he will be some way behind the rest of the squad in terms of pre-season preparation.

"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. With the likes of Marcelo Brozovic and Geoffrey Kondogbia blowing hot and cold last season, Matic is just the kind of quality midfielder who can add solidity to Luciano Spalletti's side.
