It’s said that Chelsea player Tiemoue Bakayoko is going to join AC Milan in the next transfer window.
If AC Milan sells Franck Kessie to Monaco, Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko could make a stunning return to San Siro
Angel Correa is not the only player in the last days of the summer transfer window who can join Milan. If the Rossoneri sell Franck Kessie to Monaco, Tiemoue Bakayoko could make a spectacular return to Milan.
AC Milan and the French club keep on talking about Kessie. Milan has to make a major sale to finance a bid for Correa and the club could then sell the Ivorian midfielder, with no offers so far for Andre Silva.
In that situation Bakayoko will return to San Siro as substitute Tuttosport reports from Kessie. The Chelsea midfielder is not part of the plans of Frank Lampard and will leave Stamford Bridge on loan again. The player offered off to Milan himself.
Tiemoue Bakayoko turned into one of last season’s best players at AC Milan after a tough start to life in Italy. He was loaned to Milan after struggling to impress at Stamford Bridge during the 2017-18 season, where he was in 31 Series A appearances twice.
While the 25-year-old has since moved to Monaco, Calciomercato notes that Bakayoko has taken a second San Siro spell as his sights.
Monaco actually has the option to turn the player’s loan spell into a permanent transfer, but this is deemed highly unlikely due to the current financial climate.
Even if they want to recover near the £40 m they shelled out three years ago, in order to tempt Milan into a deal, Chelsea would have to lower his price.
Bakayoko was only over two years on his terms with the Blues
