GdS: Milan want to close €32m deal with Chelsea this weekend as Granovskaia plays hard ball

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are pushing to complete the signing of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Chelsea after tying up three other deals, a report claims.

The Rossoneri have been busy on multiple fronts in recent days, securing Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s renewal as well as the additions of Sandro Tonali and Brahim Diaz.

According to Thursday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan will intensify talks with Chelsea over the return of Bakayoko by the weekend.

Milan already have an agreement with the player on salary, but have not yet obtained the green light from the Blues. Their transfer chief Marina Granovskaia is proving to be a tough nut to crack, after securing Tonali Milan can move with greater strength and less pressure.

Chelsea have already accepted a loan with option to buy as the formula, and the paper claims that the transaction should be around €30-32million in total, with Milan obviously trying to get the best conditions.
