Chelsea FC will not look to sell Alvaro Morata or Tiemoue Bakayoko this summer, unless the players express their interest in leaving the club, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Blues are keen to keep hold of the duo despite their mixed first seasons at Stamford Bridge following their moves last summer.

According to the same report, Chelsea FC have learned their less from letting the likes of Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne leave the club too early, and they are willing to let Morata and Bakayoko prove themselves at the club.

The same story claims that Serie A giants Juventus are keen on re-signing Morata this summer, and that Monaco would be interested in taking Bakayoko back just a year after his move to Stamford Bridge.

However, the article also says that Chelsea FC would only consider selling if either of the duo clearly express their desire to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

Chelsea FC are currently in fifth place in the Premier League table and looking set to miss out on a place in next season’s Champions League.

The Blues can still end the campaign with a trophy when they take on Manchester United in the FA Cup final next month.
