Matic could be wearing the red of United next season but Chelsea would rather sell abroad

The Sun says the 22-year-old made a decision to leave the Premier League champions in order to further his career.

But Bakayoko had already given the game away to fans on Instagram as his latest story showed him leaving a hotel in Chelsea.

It's certainly not something that's beneath Bakayoko as just yesterday morning he geo-tagged one of his Tweets to Manchester, trying to convey the fact he was there instead of in London.

The Blues have been waiting for over a fortnight to complete the Bakayoko deal because of a knee surgery the 22 year-old suffered at the end of last season.

Chelsea announced on Friday that Brazilian midfielder Lucas Piazon has signed a two-year contract extension ahead of another loan move to Fulham.

Trinamool Congress's Derek O'Brien claimed that all parties were united on the issue of national security. He questioned why the government wasn't ready, if it had intelligence inputs about a terrorist attack.

His tweet about Manchester was deleted before Bakayoko was seen posing with Chelsea star David Luiz and super-agent Kia Joorabchian, hinting a deal was done.

Both Costa and Matic have always been touted with a move this summer after being considered surplus to requirements by Conte, with Atletico Madrid and Juventus the front-runners for the duo respectively.

Although the Blues failed with a bid of £37m earlier in the month it was expected they would come back with a bigger offer but apparently United are "confident" they have won the auction.

Matic was an important figure in the Chelsea line-up last season, making 30 starts in the league alongside N'Golo Kante, helping them win the title for the second time in three years.

That's changed in the past few days with Antonio Rudiger, 24, arriving from Roma in a £29m deal. The club are in talks with Real Madrid over right-back Danilo and striker Alvaro Morata, and are also negotiating with Juventus for left-back Alex Sandro.
