Tiemoue Bakayoko linked with loan move to AC Milan

Jose Mourinho

Now though Sky is reporting that talks are well advanced for Bakayoko, with a loan with option to buy being discussed.

Our delight at Bakayoko's impending departure may seem a little harsh, but from a purely footballing perspective, it's good news that Maurizio Sarri will not be burdened with him, as Antonio Conte was last season.

Bakayoko did not feature for Chelsea in last Sunday's Community Shield defeat by Manchester City.

The French midfielder struggled during his first season in London after a big-money move from Monaco and is set to fall out of favour at Stamford Bridge.

Jorginho, Kante and Ross Barkley are likely to be the trio that start in midfield when Chelsea face Huddersfield in their opening Premier League clash today (3pm), say the Mirror.

"As in regarding getting to that 20, 25 goal tally because I think that is really important for Chelsea to get to that".

Dutch Ryanair pilots plan Friday strike as carrier takes union to court
The unprecedented simultaneous strike action is the latest headache in a turbulent summer for Europe's second-largest airline. Unions have strongly condemned what they see as Ryanair's attempts to play countries off against each other.

It remains to be seen how quickly AC Milan will seal the deal.

Courtois has been trying to force his way out of Stamford Bridge this summer after refusing to sign a new contract and Chelsea have made a decision to cash-in rather than risk losing him for nothing next summer.

"Next year I will try and change pre-season completely, if I can".

Speaking after the game, he insisted that he is not looking to leave his current club while mentioning Barca's attempts to sign him.

"We are very happy to welcome Mateo to the Chelsea family".
