Goal: PSG motoring ahead with deal for Milan midfield target as Chelsea eye double sale

By Oliver Fisher -

Chelsea midfielder and Milan target Tiemoue Bakayoko is in talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a loan move, according to a report.

Milan have been repeatedly linked with a move for Bakayoko, who had a successful loan spell at San Siro in the 2018-19 season under Gennaro Gattuso.

According to Goal though, it is PSG who are pushing ahead with a deal and sporting director Leonardo is leading the charge to try and sign the Paris-native on a loan with option to buy deal.

Chelsea transfer chief Marina Granovskaia is proving to be a tough negotiator though as she is willing to accept a €3m loan fee but would prefer to either sell the former Monaco star permanently, or include an obligation-to-buy clause.

PSG are ahead of Milan in the running, the report adds, as the Rossoneri have found themselves ‘frustrated in their talks with Chelsea’ over the 26-year-old.

Thomas Tuchel, the PSG head coach, has approved the pursuit of both Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger.
