New Chelsea signing poses with reported Man United target

And after weeks of hard negotiations, Chelsea have finally secured the midfield signing Antonio Conte wanted, paving the way for Nemanja Matic - who has been training alone since the Blues players returned to Cobham for preseason training last Monday - to be sold.

Bakayoko completed the long awaited deal on Saturday after completing his medicals and in his interview with the club's offial website, he revealed his biggest influence in his career.

The 22-year-old becomes Antonio Conte's third signing of the summer transfer window.

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.

Chelsea have made a number of signings in the transfer market so far signing Antonio Rudiger, Willy Caballero and yesterday Monaco Midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko for £40m.

'Tiemoue was outstanding as Monaco emerged as one of Europe's best sides last season and we are delighted to welcome him to Chelsea, ' said Michael Emenalo upon his arrival. He enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence at Monaco last season after two years of being viewed as an unfulfilled talent, and he only earned his first worldwide cap for France in March. 'For me this is the biggest English club, and I hope to achieve great things here.

"I think I am an intelligent player who offers physicality and can also dribble and get by people".

'Chelsea is a great club with a great history, and they are the champions of England.

"My wish was to be at the best English club there is today".

"Now the work starts".

With attraction from the Red Devils, this would see a departure from Stamford Bridge.

"I am now looking forward to evolving under this fantastic coach [Antonio Conte] and alongside so many great team-mates". "I am sure he will adapt to the system and he will bring Chelsea to a different level, so I'm very pleased, very pleased".
