Bakayoko signs in Chelsea (off.)


"I played in Italy and I spoke with a couple of team-mates - for example [Daniele] De Rossi - and he told me a lot about Conte and [his quality] is visible".

Conte has still been part of pre-season but is no closer to signing the new contract with the saga set to continue throughout the summer.

As a champion with Ligue 1 side AS Monaco, he has drawn interest from teams across Europe.

Every transfer carries an element of risk, and Bakayoko's body of work at the elite level is smaller than most.

Bakayoko also went on to reveal how he was helped by former Chelsea midfielder Claude Makelele during his time at Monaco, and that Didier Drogba is a huge inspiration.

Bakayoko, a physical all-action player, will partner French compatriot N'Golo Kanté in a formidable Chelsea midfield, as the west Londoners look to retain their Premier League title and have a decent crack at the Champions League.

The 22-year-old has actually been second to Torres after ₤ 40m - around ₤ 10m less than Fernando Torres in 2011.

Remy has proven time and time again that he has the ability to find the back of the net consistently in the Premier League.

Antonio Conte has been at Stamford Bridge for barely over a year, but he's already made an impact beyond just results on the pitch.

Nemanja Matic has been linked with a switch from Chelsea to reunite with Mourinho and Desailly believes the signing of a more defensively-minded midfielder would benefit Pogba.

Ramires, signed from Benfica for £18m in the summer of 2010, has one of the more interesting Chelsea legacies. Willy Caballero was the Blues first arrival as the goalkeeper moved to Stamford Bridge on a free transfer after he was released from Manchester City.
