GdS: Agreement imminent between Milan and Chelsea after Bakayoko’s Tonali-esque gesture

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are Chelsea have almost reached a full and total agreement over the return of Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to a report.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes this morning that after constant negotiations, the Rossoneri and the Blues are almost at the ‘done deal’ stage regarding Bakayoko as a total agreement seems to be imminent.

There is only one thing missing at present and that is a consensus on the figure of the option to buy that will be inserted as part of the loan operation, but it does not seem to represent a problem as things stand.

Bakayoko himself made a gesture to try and close his return to Milan as he has given up part of his salary, effectively lowering his demands in order to play for the club again. To date, the former Monaco midfielder receives €3m net per season, but Milan will only pay him €2.5m.

It is a choice similar to that made by Sandro Tonali in July who, in order to facilitate the buy-out by Milan, accepted a lower salary than what was initially agreed.
