CHELSEA star Tiemoue Bakayoko has been involved in a car crash on his way home from training today, The Sun can reveal.
The 23-year-old Bakayoko signed for the Blues from Monaco this summer, was driving along Blundell Lane near their Cobham facility at around 3.30pm when the incident happened.
Police were called to the scene this afternoon, after the French international was travelling towards Oxshott, Surrey, when the incident happened.
It is understood nobody else was involved.
Chelsea paid Monaco £40million for Bakayoko close to transfer deadline day, handing him a five-year contract.
The Sun understands that Bakayoko had a minor accident, but he did not suffer any significant injuries, and he is now back at home resting.
Bakayoko was one of Antonio Conte’s top transfer targets all summer and the Italian was understandably delighted to have landed his man.
It did look touch-and-go for the Blues at one stage when Manchester United reportedly joined the race for Bakayoko’s signature.
Bakayoko has been brilliant at the start of his Blues career, and it seems like only a matter of time before he forces his way into Antonio Conte’s starting eleven and makes one of the two midfield spots his own.
It has been plain sailing for the France international in SW6, until now. As per The Sun, the player has been involved in a car crash while on his way home from Chelsea’s Cobham training ground.
