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.

One player definitely heading for the Stamford Bridge exit is Nathan Chalobah.

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.

Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we'll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe.

Bakayoko is in London and has been documenting his travels on Instagram Stories, in case any Chelsea fans are anxious about the deal getting done.

The 22-year-old will now undergo a full medical on Friday, with the move having previously been partly delayed by the French global having to go through routine keyhole surgery on his knee at the end of Monaco's Ligue 1 title win.

Tiemoue Bakayoko has arrived at Chelsea's Cobham training facility to finalise his move from Monaco. The next player expected to switch Eindhoven for Manchester was Robben, but Chelsea came in and stole him away and he was an immediate success.

There had been speculation Manchester United might try and stymie the bid for Bakayoko - who made his senior global debut earlier this year - just as they did with Lukaku, as they broke the record for a deal between British clubs of £75m to prise him away from Everton on Monday.

What Chelsea lose with Matic's experience, they more than gain with Bakayoko's energy. That includes Arsenal, who have looked at Matic.

Confirmed target Romelu Lukaku joined Manchester United and their fear is that the 22-year-old Frenchman could do the same.
