Pellegatti affirms his belief that Chelsea midfielder ‘will arrive at Milan in the end’

By Oliver Fisher -

Journalist Carlo Pellegatti firmly believes that Tiemoue Bakayoko will return to AC Milan this summer from Chelsea.

The Frenchman has of course already played for the Rossoneri as he joined on loan for the 2018-19 season, during which he collected 42 appearances and even scored a goal against Inter. To buy him permanently at the end of that season would have cost €35m, a figure Milan didn’t have after missing out on the top four again.

We revealed recently that Milan have held talks with the agency representing Bakyoko about the idea of a return to the club. Now, the well-known journalist Carlo Pellegatti has made his thoughts on the situation known via his YouTube channel, revealing his belief that in the end the former Monaco man will return to San Siro.

“I give you a feeling, I am unbalanced, you will see that Bakayoko will arrive at Milan in the end, because the owners like him to death and the management like him too,” he said (via MilanLive).

“He will be Rossonero, I don’t know how and when, but if I had to bet I would tell you this. I don’t think there will be any important offers for him after the season at Napoli and Milan are waiting for him. Everyone wants him.”
