Chelsea to sell Tiemoue Bakayoko

Grant SmithAug 11, 2018

That one extra player to push you to the next level.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk star played a key part as the Selecao were knocked out in the quarter finals by Belgium. Bakayoko made 43 appearances across all competitions for Chelsea last term. I have spoken with him three or four times for everything, and he never said something about the market.

He told the club's official website: "I am really happy and excited to be here at Chelsea".

"But I have my head here and I intend to continue in the club unless the club wants to sell me". "We have to do all we can to keep improving".

A breakthrough was reached during talks with Madrid as news broke over the past 24 hours claiming that the Croatian worldwide was due to fly-in to London to undergo his medical ahead of a move to Chelsea.

New Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri instead used Jorginho who joined the Blues from Italian club Napoli.

Along with Willian, Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have also been heavily linked with moves away from the club.

The presence of Danny Drinkwater on the bench instead suggested that Sarri is likely to use the Englishman more than he would make use of Bakayoko in the coming season.

The Premier League transfer market curtain is set to drop on Thursday, while English teams seek to finalise as many as 40 deals.

Chelsea start their Premier League campaign this Saturday against Huddersfield at The John Smith's Stadium.
