Tiemoue Bakayoko happy to join "biggest English club"

Gary Neville

Bakayoko was a key figure for Monaco as they won the French title and reached the Champions League semi-finals last season, scoring the goal that eliminated Manchester City in the last 16 of the competition.

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".

While Bakayoko has not yet pulled on the training kit, the Frenchman was a keen spectator as Antonio Conte put the boys through their paces at Cobham on Saturday. I grew up in the Chelsea games and the signing of the contract with this club has become commonplace for me as I love him.

The France global has signed a five-year contract with the English Premier League champions, and will wear the number 14 shirt at the club next season.

Talking to a pre-season press conference in Japan, Rudiger credited coach Antonio Conte for being a major reason in his move to London, also claiming that his new club is superior to Roma.

The Chelsea boss was expected to sign new terms after winning the Premier League.

'I have played a match with him for the French national team so we know each other very well and I hope we can do attractive things together this year'. "I am very proud", he told the club's official website.

The 35-year-old goalkeeper was brought in by Chelsea on a free transfer to replace Asmir Begovic, who joined Bournemouth earlier this summer. When he arrived at Monaco I wasn't a very, very good player, but I had a lot of discussions with him, he gave me a lot of advice, and he allowed me to play my style of football more simply'.
