Tiemoue Bakayoko hints his £39.7m Chelsea move may be off in yet another cryptic social media post

TIEMOUE BAKAYOKO appears to be hinting his Chelsea move is off in yet another cryptic social media post.

The Monaco star was in London for his medical today and has been teasing supporters with a series of posts.

And his latest Tweet, featuring plane emojis, stop signs and the principality’s flag sent on his way to Heathrow Airport has Blues fans on red alert.

The France-born midfielder followed it up with a post saying he was already missing Monaco after just two days away.

Bakayoko underwent knee surgery at the end of last season and is expected to be unavailable for the start of the next campaign.

And while the issue may have been flagged in his medical, the Monaco star could just be playing wind-up merchant.

Bakayoko arrived in the UK via Eurostar last night – as charted on his social media accounts – and has been trolling supporters ever since.

He tweeted suggesting he was on his way to Manchester – having been linked with United – but was then pictured at Chelsea’s Cobham HQ.

Bakayoko's first tweet was deleted, but not before it was seen by plenty of supporters

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.

But hope turned to fear again when the ace posted yet another update, this time showing a red circle, a white circle and two heart emojis.

This led to an outburst of pleas from Chelsea fans for Bakayoko to “please stop trolling”, with some noticing he’d also followed United, as well as Red Devils stars Marcus Rashford and Eric Bailly on Instagram.

One wrote: “I give up. You’re trolling us all the time!”

Another said: “Jose hijacked his plane from London to Manchester.”

One angry supporter added: “Go to Manchester since you wanna be childish with your teasers.”
