Chelsea all set to announce deal as powerhouse midfielder Bakayoko in talks about move
Reports have claimed Chelsea are on the verge of selling Timeoue Bakayoko, as he is on the verge od sealing a move to Galatasaray.
The midfielder spent 2018/19 on loan at AC Milan and despite his good moments, his time in Italy ended badly after being victim of racist abuse by a group of Lazio fans.
However, there has been a lot of transfer speculation in the media over the past few months which have suggested that French giants Monaco may be interested in trying to take him to Ligue 1 this summer, with an offer of around £25 million on the cards.
However, with Chelsea still in the midst of their transfer ban, they need all the players they can get and Abdoulaye, Bakayoko’s brother and agent, has was recently quoted by L’Equipe saying a Chelsea stay is possible and something they’re aiming for.
But according to reports on the Metro website, Although Frank Lampard was keen to give all of his players a fresh start at the club, Bakayoko doesn’t feature in his plans for the upcoming campaign and he is no in talks to leave the club for Monaco
Lampard has seen what kind of quality he has this transfer window and clearly believes that Bakayoko is not worth the hassle, and selling him would be a big message to many of the Chelsea team.
Lampard has some very exciting talents at the club and they need to be given a real chance, so the news that a player that would take up a place in the first tea squad is going will be great news for them.
Plus a move away gives Bakayoko a chance to reignite his career as he is done at Stamford Bridge and will never become a first-team regular in the side
