Chelsea midfielder responds to idea of Rossoneri return: “Everyone knows Milan are in my heart”

By Oliver Fisher -

Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has reiterated his love for AC Milan amid speculation linking him with a return to the San Siro.

Both Fabrizio Romano and Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia have claimed in the last few hours that Bakayoko is a ‘concrete’ target for Milan this summer.

Milan are believed to be in talks with Chelsea over a deal for Bakayoko on the basis of a paid loan with the possibility of it becoming permanent.

The Frenchman keeps being mentioned, as one of the priorities for the management appears to be to strengthen the midfield, as Pioli will continue with a 4-2-3-1 but alternatives to Kessie and Bennacer are needed.

Bakayoko left the Rossoneri a year ago after a successful loan spell under Gennaro Gattuso in 2018-19, and was contacted by TMW and was asked about his future, indicating his love for Milan.

“Everyone knows Milan are in my heart and I have excellent memories. At the moment I am a Chelsea player, then in football we will see,” he said.
