  • Chelsea fans on Twitter erupt in shock as star is set to leave the club

It's now believed that Everton want Bakayoko, but AC Milan are currently in the driving seat according to the report, with Borussia Dortmund also interested, leaving the Toffees with work to do if they want Bakayoko before Thursday's 5pm deadline.

Croatia global midfielder Mateo Kovacic has said that it feels "amazing" to have completed a one-year loan move to Chelsea from Real Madrid.

Well, in all honesty it seems rather unlikely Mourinho will be getting the right-sided attacker he's been wanting all summer long before this week's transfer deadline.

However, the Blues swung into action late Wednesday when they agreed to sell goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid in a deal which paved the way for Athletic Bilbao 'keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to move to Stamford Bridge on a seven-year deal worth an estimated £71 million. Yet he was not able to satisfy the Chelsea bosses of his reliability as he had a dodgy first season.

Mateo Kovacic is being reportedly close to signing for Chelsea making Bakayoko surplus to requirements.

Additionally, ambulances were called to Kidder's home five times in seven months, including at the time of her death. Her film "Robber's Roost" was in pre-production, and the final film she worked on was 2017's " The Neighborhood ".

Bakayoko did not even make the bench which included another midfielder in Danny Drinkwater, while England midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has only just returned to training following the World Cup.

Speaking after the 2-0 Community Shield defeat by Manchester City, he told ESPN Brasil: "I always made it clear that what I wanted was to stay in the club".

With Milan leading the race for Bakayoko, Everton's interest appears to be dependent on whether or not they land Zouma.

The France worldwide has been involved in Chelsea's pre-season under new manager Maurizio Sarri and started in their last friendly on Tuesday night against Lyon at Stamford Bridge.

The key question for Mourinho is whether he can finally get the best out of Alexis Sanchez, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku and find a positive style of play that the Old Trafford faithful demand.
