Chelsea Closing in on Monaco Move
Monaco ace Bakayoko closing in on £35 million Chelsea move
Tiemoue Bakayoko is set to complete a £35 million switch to Chelsea from Monaco as protracted negotiations made serious headway over the past few days.
Antonio Conte made Bakayoko his preferred option to strengthen his midfield and the deal has been described as “close” by people involved in the deal.
Chelsea grew impatient with the slow negotiations in recent weeks, but all three parties are thought to have recently agreed the financial details of the move.
Monaco used the negotiations for Bakayoko to state their interest in Michy Batshuayi, but he will not be included in Chelsea’s move for the 22-year-old.
