Tiemoue Bakayoko Continues Social Media Teases as He Arrives at Chelsea Training Ground for Medical

?Tiemoue Bakayoko is set to formally be a Chelsea player within a matter of hours after the 22-year-old rising star posted an Instagram story from the club’s Cohbam training ground in Surrey as he undergoes his medical and finalises the £39.7m transfer from Monaco.

Taking to the picture and video sharing platform, Bakayoko captured a scene through a window at the facilities, adding arrows pointing to the training pitch and a caption that read, “soon soon soon soon”.

Expected since the end of the June, the deal is thought to have been held up by concerns over a knee injury the player suffered towards the end of last season.

There were later claims that Manchester United were looking to hijack the deal, while even on Friday morning Bakayoko was intent on teasing after a pair of tweets appeared to be posted from ‘Manchester’, one of which featured red and white emojis – it was later deleted.

Yet he has seen dining with a handful of his new Chelsea team-mates the night before, including David Luiz and Willian, and has been ‘liking’ a whole host of tweets from Monaco fans wishing him the best in the future, and Chelsea fans welcoming him to the club.

Bakayoko has also exchanged tweets with Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi this week.

A further update on Twitter featured a video of Bakayoko driving a car and talking about Ronaldinho, but featured the caption ‘stayed tuned’ and ‘soon’, with the two Os in soon replaced with blue emojis.

Another tweet on Friday afternoon featured a picture of Ronaldinho, Frank Lampard and John Terry from the end of a Champions League clash between Chelsea and Barcelona in 2006 and ‘#Legendary’ as a caption.

Once the deal is complete, Bakayoko will become the most expensive midfielder in Chelsea history and the second most expensive overall behind only £50m striker Fernando Torres.
