In the last few weeks, Tiemoue Bakayoko has been heavily linked with a return to Milan, as the latter are looking for a midfielder. However, the negotiations have seemingly slowed down in recent days.
This morning, Chelsea published a squad number list on social media and the midfielder was missing from the photo. A hint suggesting that Bakayoko isn’t part of Frank Lampard’s plan for this season.

Just a few minutes ago, Chelsea tweeted an updated version of the list as Michy Batshuayi has completed a move to Crystal Palace. Once again, Bakayoko was missing and the rumours of a departure are gathering steam.
