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

Chelsea intensified their effort in signing the midfielder after losing out on the signing of Romelu Lukuku to Manchester United who were also reportedly interested in him.

Chelsea have granted both Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic permission to miss the club's pre-season tour of China and Singapore - amid the duo's negotiations for an exit from Stamford Bridge.

Bakayoko is thought to be one of Antonio Conte's primary targets this summer as the Italian coach looks to improve his midfield options.

Bakayoko, a midfielder with Monaco, was at Chelsea's Cobham training ground today to undergo his medical and finalize his approximately £40 million move.

TIEMOUE BAKAYOKO appears to be hinting his Chelsea move is off in yet another cryptic social media post.

Friday morning investigators continued to search the property. "My heart goes out to his parents and all of the other parents". Kratz, of Philadelphia, was arrested on Thursday hours after Dinardo, of Bensalam, confessed to the murders, authorities said.

The 22-year-old French global was in fantastic form in Monaco's title winning campaign.

His tweet about Manchester was deleted before Bakayoko was seen posing with Chelsea star David Luiz and super-agent Kia Joorabchian, hinting a deal was done.

The 22-year-old Bakayoko was pivotal in helping Monaco win the French league last season and Chelsea had been sounding out the playmaker about a move to west London.

Chelsea have made just two signings so far this season, capturing Willy Caballero on a free transfer before landing Antonio Rudiger from Roma for £34m.

Academy defender Jake Clarke-Salter, 19, has also penned a new four-year contract.

Chelsea face FA Cup winners Arsenal again at Wembley in the Community Shield on August 6 and open the defence of their Premier League crown at home against Burnley on August 12.
