New Chelsea signing Bakayoko.
Chelsea and Juventus were thought to be leading the way for the Real Madrid defender but City have now made an approach as they seek to meet Pep Guardiola's lavish demands for a full cohort of new full-backs.
The Blues have now turned their attention to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The football club has tripped up regarding a number of targets this time, most notably in losing Romelu Lukaku, and Conte is not impressed.
Costa is in Brazil after being given an extended break to sort out his return to the La Liga outfit. "He can defend, he can also project himself and he's coming into a team that is tactically very well organised, so he can fit quickly", Desailly told Omnisport.
The Belgium international is also likely to be keen on a switch to the Spanish capital with Dani Alves joining Les Parisiens - the Brazilian's arrival is threatening to push Meunier down the pecking order.
"But we need more".
The Blues will be travelling to China and Singapore, where they will face Arsenal, Bayern Munich, and Inter Milan. So it is a blow for him really. Everyone is moving round, the prices are very high, so let's wait till the end.
And former Chelsea star Desailly says he would love to see Chelsea sign the Borussia Dortmund star this summer.
He had met the 34-year-old in the expectation that a verbally agreed free transfer from Juventus was about to be completed.
But it remains to be seen whether Manchester City would be prepared to sell the prolific striker to Premier League title rivals in the shape of Chelsea. As punters who take advantage of online betting in NZ can attest to, he has not ever been required to cover a full-back position, and that has restricted him from a number of games in what is definitely his strongest position. The PSG defender is being eyed as a replacement for Danilo, who is set to depart from Santiago Bernabeu.
