Chelsea agree £39.7m deal for Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko

Chelsea have been waiting for over a fortnight to complete the Bakayoko deal because of knee surgery the 22 year-old underwent at the end of last season.

Chelsea fans have been left sweating after Tiemoue Bakayoko hinted he's signing for Manchester United instead.

Antonio Conte's insistence on signing Danilo, a better playing system and the fact he will play more at Chelsea, has convinced the former Porto full back to make the move. Aubameyang has scored 85 goals in 128 games in the Bundesliga and is in high demand.

Ronaldinho was part of the successful Brazil squad at the 2002 World Cup and also played for Paris Saint-Germain and Milan.

According to some of the press, United had "hijacked" Chelsea's Lukaku move, even though it was also claimed that United had been quietly working on the deal for weeks.

That post was soon deleted, leading to a huge sigh relief from the Stamford Bridge faithful. The Spanish striker's departure would leave just Loic Remy and Michy Batshuayi on the books of the West London club with less than a month to go until their Community Shield clash with Arsenal. Juanma Lopez, Morata's agent, and his father, Alfonso Morata, met with Real officials to discuss the player's future.

Danilo is expected to take the place of Victor Moses, who was one of the surprise stand out players in the Premier League last season.

Jose Mourinho is waiting to hear if Chelsea will sell them Nemanja Matic this summer.

Matic was an important figure in the Chelsea line-up last season, making 30 starts in the league alongside N'Golo Kante, helping them win the title for the second time in three years.
