25-year-old French midfielder Tiémoué Bakayoko is returning to AS Monaco on loan with an option to buy from Chelsea.
The player said his goodbyes to team-mates in London today and will arrive in France this evening.
He will undergo a medical tomorrow ahead of signing his contract. The option to purchase for ASM is around €35m.
This is expected to be Monaco’s 2nd last summer incoming, with a striker due to come in to replace the outgoing Falcao.
