The future of midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko depends exclusively on Champions League qualification for AC Milan, a report claims.
Bakayoko arrived on loan from Chelsea last summer and after a rough start has become one of the Rossoneri’s most consistent performers.
Milan have an option to sign him permanently for €35m, and recent reports have suggested that the club intend to exercise that right to buy.
His statements to France Football show the Frenchman’s great attachment to Milan and seemingly his desire to stay beyond his loan spell, but not everything is set in stone.
According to Tuesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan will only use their €35m option to buy should they secure a return to the Champions League for next season.
