Michy Batshuayi and Tiemoue Bakayoko’s Twitter exchange basically confirms transfer

The Chelsea bench warmer is renowned for causing a stir on social media

Chelsea fans have been waiting patiently all summer for the club to unveil Tiemoue Bakayoko as their new signing.

The Monaco star has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League champions but the deal has seemingly stalled multiple times.

It’s all quite frustrating.

Getting that Chelsea deal sorted, Tiemoue?

Getting that Chelsea deal sorted, Tiemoue?

But judging by Michy Batshuayi’s exchange with the Frenchman on Twitter on Thursday night, the deal is pretty close to being done.


Just check out those suggestive emojis:


Hmm, what could it all mean?

The Belgium hasn’t had much of an impact at Stamford Bridge since joining from Marseille last summer, but at least he knows how to cause a stir on social media.

The Blues striker hardly featured last season and has been linked with a move to Fenerbahce and his old club Marseille, despite Chelsea’s current striker crisis.

If he does leave, at least we’ll always have his brilliant social media put downs and that title-winning goal against West Brom last season to remember him by.
