Tiemoue Bakayoko arrives at Cobham to finalise £40m Chelsea deal

The 22-year-old Frenchman recently posted a photo of himself standing near a jet plane, and captioned it, "Let's Go".

Costa has always been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, despite playing an integral role in the title triumph last term, and was granted permission to miss the start of pre-season training this week.

With Matic now having just two years left on his contract, Chelsea are now prepared to let him leave.

Both Costa and Matic have always been touted with a move this summer after being considered surplus to requirements by Conte, with Atletico Madrid and Juventus the front-runners for the duo respectively.

Juventus may face opposition from Manchester United as it has been claimed Matic has his heart set on reuniting with Mourinho at Old Trafford.

One player definitely heading for the Stamford Bridge exit is Nathan Chalobah.

The Premier League champions have already lost out to Manchester United in the race to sign Belgium global Romelu Lukaku.

Tiemoue Bakayoko scored the winning goal in their Round of 16 thriller against Manchester City. While they may be hesitant to sell him to Manchester United, Inter Milan have reportedly made a bid and seems to be the most likely destination for Matic.

Bakayoko has been linked all summer with Chelsea following his impressive year with Monaco last season when they won the Ligue 1 and got to the semi-final of the Champions League.

That's changed in the past few days with Antonio Rudiger, 24, arriving from Roma in a £29m deal.

The 47-year-old Italian, who along with his coaching staff are yet to sign new contracts offered at the end of last term, is hoping to conclude deals for Juventus' Alex Sandro and Spanish worldwide striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.
