Milan are looking for a midfielder on the market, having sent Soualiho Meite back to Torino, and a familiar name has ended up on their radar. A report claims that Tiemoue Bakayoko could make a return to the club.
Bakayoko spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Milan and impressed with his performances, earning the appreciation of the fans. However, due to Chelsea’s high demands, he wasn’t redeemed by the club and the story ended there.
According to Santi’ FM of FootMercato, though, the Rossoneri still like the midfielder a lot and have initiated contacts with his agent. In other words, they could rival Atletico Madrid in the race for Bakayoko’s signature.

His contract with Chelsea will expire in the summer of 2022 and the price tag could thus perhaps be reasonable. That being said, we will have to wait and see if confirmations will arrive from Italian media as well.
