Chelsea have confirmed the signing of French midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko on a five-year deal from AS Monaco today.

The new Blues’ star, who will wear No.14 shirt, told the club’s official website: “I am very happy to be here and to join this great team. I have grown up watching Chelsea. Signing was the natural thing for me because it is a club I loved very much in my childhood”.

“I am now looking forward to evolving under this fantastic coach and alongside so many great team-mates”.

Tiemoué Bakayoko was in London and Cobham to close his deal with Chelsea yesterday, as we reported here on ChelseaNews24.

The transfer was not completed, anyway, because some issues emerged at the moment to sign the papers, as we explained last night here.

The French midfielder was really disappointed by this situation and the deal was closed to be called off, with Bakayoko flying back to Monaco, showing his dissatisfaction on social networks.

But the deal can eventually happen: Chelsea, Monaco, Bakayoko and his agents are keen to close it – the two clubs already agreed a £ 40m fee- and the contract can be signed this weekend, maybe today, with the French midfielder set to be unveiled as a Blues player before the team take off for the Asian tour.

Something is going going on in the deal that has to bring Tiemoué Bakayoko to Chelsea.

As we reported today the French midfielder was in London last night, where he had dinner with David Luiz and Willian, and at Cobham today to undergo a medical and finally sign his contract with the Blues.

Something went wrong at the moment to sign, with too many agents and representatives – the main one was Kia Joorabchian– that wanted to be on his contract to take their wages, a situation that created confusion, so the deal was temporarily called off.

AS Monaco told French press that the problem in the deal was not the medical, that was passed, or the fee, since the two clubs reached an agreement in the past days ( approximately £ 40m).

Bakayoko seemed very disappointed and after showing his enthusiasm to be close to sign for Chelsea all over the day with his Instagram activity, he suddenly changed his Twitter profile picture, putting back an old snap in Monaco shirt.

After liking a tweet that was claiming that Chelsea rejected him ( knee problems?) Tiemoué Bakayoko is the protagonist of another ambiguous tweet on the social media.

A Twitter account called Nigerian Sports News was reporting that Alvaro Morata was going to join Chelsea, while Bakayoko was set for a move to Manchester United.

The AS Monaco star retweeted the news commenting “Oui ça” that is the French way to say “Oh Yeah”.


The French midfielder, anyway, cancelled the tweet right after, but too late for screenshot catchers, who already saved the enigmatic activity.

There’s still a lot of confusion over Tiemoue Bakayoko move to Chelsea.

The tweet was posted in the morning og July 10th and he was written in French: “Chelsea rejected him – the translation reads – United are hesitating, he’s calling everyone, he contacted Liverpool himself”.

Bakayoko himself liked the tweet and then he commented “Yes” under the post, which was later removed.

After Manchester United beat Chelsea in the race to Romelu Lukaku the Red Devils can “steal” the Blues another player.

According to both Starsport, according to which a fee has already been agreed, and Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol, Manchester United can sign Tiemoué Bakayoko who is in talks with Chelsea.

This can happen also because now the London club doesn’t want to sell Nemanja Matic to José Mourinho‘s team anymore after the “Lukaku affair”.
