Rumour: Chelsea set to off load another player

Bakayoko set to end Chelsea nightmare.

Galatasary may be the last chance saloon for Tiemoue Bakayoko. The Turkish giants are keen to take French midfielder on loan.
He arrived from Monaco in 2017 with a hefty 40 million euro price tag. The Stamford Bridge club would like to recoup as much as possible of that fee.
According to Goal.com Galatasary can come nowhere near that valuation. In fact, they are looking to Chelsea to pay a portion of his 120,000 pound weekly wages.
The French international has been given plenty of playing time this preseason. In the hope, he could impress new boss Frank Lampard.
Lampard has seen enough to decide even with a transfer embargo he has no use for him.
He spent last season on loan at AC Milan. That too was rather uninspiring and they sent him back to London when the loan was over.

Paris Saint-Germain expressed an interest in Bakayoko, a Parisien native. But they completed a deal with Everton for Gueye.

Lampard wants to cut his squad down. He feels that he simply has too many players.

There is even talk of offloading Kenedy and Zappacosta before the window shuts.

Kenedy and Davide Zappacosta are other options who could be sold in the coming weeks as Lampard looks to cut down his core group.

There have been interested parties from Spain and Italy respectively for each of those players.

The fact that Chelsea can’t sign anyone means they are not limited to the early window closure.

That is only in reference to player acquisition and registration.

The Turkish, Spanish and Italian windows close on September 2nd.
