Tiemoue Bakayoko was one of Monaco’s key players last season as he helped the club win the Ligue 1 title and reach the semifinals of the Champions League.
His fine performances caught the attention of Chelsea boss Antonio Conte with a host of Europe’s top clubs interested in signing him, including Manchester United.
According to French newspaper L’Equipe, the 22-year-old prefers a move to Chelsea as reports claim his move to join the Blues is imminent.
According to the report, the defensive midfielder favours a move to Stamford Bridge in order to work alongside Antonio Conte.
Reports claim Bakayako’s move to Chelsea will be announced next week as reports suggest a five-year deal with the club has already been agreed.
Just like N’Golo Kante, Bakayako chose to snub a move to join Jose Mourinho at Manchester United and settle with Chelsea.
