Bakayoko Thanks Bathshuayi After Completing Chelsea Move

Playing for a big club like Chelsea is already good enough incentive for most players.

Bakayoko has completed his long awaited move to Chelsea from Monaco, costing the PL champions £40 million.

And the forward showed their was no love lost between himself and Blues boss Antonio Conte, as he told team-mate Cesc Fabregas to "give Conte a hug" during a live Instagram broadcast.

If City were to pay the expected asking price, it would take their summer spending on transfer fees for right-backs alone to more than £70 million, after the recruitment of Kyle Walker for what could amount to £50 million.

New Chelsea signing Tiemoue Bakayoko believes he has joined the "biggest club" in England.

Costa then responded to his fellow Spanish global, who is gearing up for next season with the Blues, by telling him to "give Costa a hug". 20 goals off the bench is nothing to scoff at, though question marks remain over the striker's consistency.

And the France worldwide declared himself ready to achieve "great things" at the club he perceives as the Premier League's finest.

Aubameyang is also another option for the Conte's Blues.

Should he leave Stamford Bridge, the 28-year-old will be missed.

Last season, the Gabonese topped Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski to become the second ever African player after Tony Yeboah to win the golden boot in Germany.

At some point, Man United fans thought their club had pipped Chelsea to the midfielder's signature (just as was the case with the signing of Romelu Lukaku).

Chelsea's technical director Michael Emenalo said: "Tiemoue was outstanding as Monaco emerged as one of Europe's best sides last season and we are delighted to welcome him to Chelsea".
