  • Gary Neville thinks whichever club recruits best this summer will win the title- and he expects that to be one of the Manchester clubs

Liverpool finished in fourth place last season and manager Jurgen Klopp has signed Egypt winger Mohamed Salah and England youngster Domimic Solanke to improve his squad. But the opportunity to work under Conte has now swung the balance of a transfer in Chelsea's favor at least a couple times and hopefully that will continue for a long time.

New Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko believes that he has joined the "perfect" club after putting pen to paper on a five-year deal in West London.

Just as Chelsea have started to splash out this summer, fresh reports have suggested that Antonio Conte could be on his way out of the club.

Nemanja Matic wants to leave Chelsea to sign for Manchester United - and is keen to have his future sorted in the next 48 hours.

Bakayoko finally completed his long-awaited move to Stamford Bridge yesterday, arriving from Ligue 1 champions Monaco in a deal reportedly worth around £40 million. He enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence at Monaco last season after two years of being viewed as an unfulfilled talent, and he only earned his first worldwide cap for France in March.

"Not to be disrespectful, but when you speak about Roma and Chelsea, Chelsea is a big club".

"I am very happy to be here and to join this great team", Bakayoko told the club's website.

It is also the largest fee that Chelsea have ever paid for a midfielder, beating the £32m paid to acquire fellow France worldwide N'Golo Kante from Leicester City last July.

Brazil global Danilo is wanted by both English Premier League football clubs and is expected to cost a minimum of €25 million (S$39.4 million). The 28-year-old scored 31 goals in the Bundesliga for Borussia Dortmund last season and since joining Dortmund, he has averaged 30 goals each campaign.
