Bakayoko is said to have gone through some physical checks in West London on Wednesday and now has just a few minor details to iron out, potentially paving the way for Nemanja Matic to depart for Man United.

According to The Sun , Chelsea will wait until Saturday to officially unveil their first high-profile signing of the summer, with the transfer window officially opening for business on July 1.

It has previously been claimed that the 22-year-old, who featured 47 times for Monaco in all competitions last season, turned down United’s advances because he was desperate to link up with Blues boss Antonio Conte.
