AC Milan Making Progress Towards Signing Chelsea Star

Kovacic joins the club as part of the deal that sees Thibaut Courtois complete his move to Real, subject to the agreement of personal terms and a medical.

The Toffees may have taken a while to get going in the transfer window, but have now added three signings after securing Joao Virginia, Lucas Digne and Richarlison.

Tiemoue Bakayoko is on the verge of joining AC Milan on-loan with an option to buy, according to reports in Italy.

With Bakayoko now earning a reported €6 million, it has been suggested that Chelsea could pay some of the player's wages in order to complete a move.

New Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has reportedly declared France worldwide Tiémoué Bakayoko surplus to requirement this season.

Saudi suspends flights to Canada ahead of Hajj
Today is a really good day for the United States to reconsider its seemingly boundless support for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Freeland would only tell reporters Monday that the Canadian ambassador is "fine" and would not disclose his location.

The French midfielder only joined Chelsea last summer in a £40m deal from Monaco.

Chelsea start their Premier League campaign this Saturday against Huddersfield at The John Smith's Stadium.

Competition in midfield may become even fiercer as Chelsea have been linked with a loan deal for Real Madrid's Mateo Kovacic ahead of tomorrow's transfer deadline day.

The presence of Danny Drinkwater on the bench instead suggested that Sarri is likely to use the Englishman more than he would make use of Bakayoko in the coming season.

Bakayoko's initial presence in Chelsea sides during pre-season sort of felt like Sarri would use him well this season, but their pursuit of Kovacic has now made him surplus to requirements.
