Tiemoue Bakayoko having Chelsea medical to pave way for Nemanja Matic to join Manchester United

Tiemoue Bakayoko edged closer to completing his £35million switch from Monaco to Chelsea after undergoing a medical with the Premier League champions.

The French midfielder, 22, is believed to have met up with medical staff from the Blues to go through his physical checks — and the announcement could coincide with the launch of Chelsea’s new Nike kit on Saturday morning.

Chelsea, who remain keen to sign left-back Alex Sandro from Juventus and Everton hitman Romelu Lukaku, are expected to pair Bakayoko alongside N’Golo Kante in a revamped central midfield.

And his arrival will trigger the exit of Nemanja Matic , with manager Antonio Conte seemingly happy to let him be reunited with former Blues boss Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.
