Bakayoko Thanks Bathshuayi After Completing Chelsea Move

Bakayoko Thanks Bathshuayi After Completing Chelsea Move

"I have grown up watching Chelsea", Bakayoko said.

The 22-year-old France international's arrival will likely make way for the exit of Nemanja Matic who, along with Diego Costa, has been left out of the Blues' Far East preseason tour squad.

"I am very happy to be here", Bakayoko told the club's official website.

Fears are mounting over the future of Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager, according to The Sun.

Chelsea have completed the £40 million (S$71.9 million) signing of midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, but now face competition from Manchester City for another of their close-season targets.

"For me this is the biggest English club, and I hope to achieve great things here.

They had a great season and I that's why I said I want to be a part of that". Bakayoko scored the decisive goal in a thrilling two-legged tie against the Premier League side. But we have to prepare ourselves in the best way because now is the time to get the oxygen for when we need it during the season, so now is the time to work hard and rest well.

"I can't say anything because I have not played in the Premier League", he added.

Makelele was not the only Chelsea great to inspire Bakayoko, who rejected interest from Manchester United, to join the team where his hero Drogba earned the adoration of the Stamford Bridge faithful.

"Of course, for me the biggest reason [to move to Chelsea] was the Coach, Antonio Conte".

Chelsea's Champions League triumph in 2012 helped them to win the race for one of the most sought-after talents in European football, with the Belgian playmaker arriving from Lille.
