Chelsea 1 Man Utd 1: Premier League Champions Set To Announce Signing Of New Yaya ToureAfter weeks of speculations, Premier League champions Chelsea are set to announce the signing of France international of Ivorian descent Tiemoué Bakayoko.

The highly-rated defensive midfielder is expected to append his signature to a five-year deal with the Stamford Bridge outfit.

The 22-year-old was a mainstay in the Monaco team last season, appearing in 51 matches across all competitions, and assisted the Principality side to win the Ligue 1 title.

Chelsea did not confirm the transfer of Bakayoko on Friday because they were still in talks with the intermediaries that helped broker the deal as regards to their agency commissions.

Manchester United were interested in signing Tiemoué Bakayoko before his trip to the English capital to undergo a medical with Chelsea.
