MN: Chelsea midfielder close to joining Milan on what could be permanent deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are proceeding well in negotiations with Chelsea over the return of Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to a report.

Bakayoko does not seem to be part of Chelsea’s plans given he has spent recent seasons on loan spells at Milan in 2018-19, then Monaco in 2019-20 and last season at Napoli. Both Napoli and Milan have been linked with a move for the 26-year-old, while Juventus and Lyon have also been mentioned.

MilanNews writes this morning that the negotiation between Milan and Chelsea for Bakayoko’s return is proceeding well and the Frenchman is close to returning to the Rossoneri. The right formula is being studied, which could actually be a permanent deal rather than any kind of new loan formula.

The report adds that Yacine Adli remains a target for the management, but there is the obstacle of the price set by Bordeaux which appears to be holding up talks for the time being.
