Tiemoue Bakayoko close to AC Milan loan move from Chelsea

11 August 2018

AC Milan are in talks to sign Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko on loan, according to Sky in Italy.

Tiemoue Bakayoko was present in games during Chelsea's pre-season but has left Maurizio Sarri unimpressed.

And Bakayoko is set to be farmed out on loan to AC Milan later today, according to the Mirror.

The Blues have been relatively quiet in the transfer window up until this point, with only Napoli midfielder Jorginho arriving at Stamford Bridge in this window so far.

The 23-year-old France global joined the Blues from Monaco last summer for £40m and started 25 Premier League games in his first season in the Premier League.

Kroenke's £550m offer to buy Alisher Usmanov's 30% stake has been accepted, meaning Kroenke will be able to make a compulsory purchase of the remaining shares.

Our delight at Bakayoko's impending departure may seem a little harsh, but from a purely footballing perspective, it's good news that Maurizio Sarri will not be burdened with him, as Antonio Conte was last season. Yet he was not able to satisfy the Chelsea bosses of his reliability as he had a dodgy first season.

Although Willian didn't start Sunday's Community Shield match against Manchester City, a 2-0 defeat, he is thought to be in Sarri's plans for his debut season in charge.

Mateo Kovacic is being reportedly close to signing for Chelsea making Bakayoko surplus to requirements.

With Milan leading the race for Bakayoko, Everton's interest appears to be dependent on whether or not they land Zouma.
