The negotiations between AC Milan and Chelsea over the loan transfer of Hakim Ziyech are seemingly proceeding well. The Rossoneri are very keen on the winger important updates have arrived.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Tomas Tuchel has told the Chelsea directors that he doesn’t mind Ziyech leaving the club this summer. Furthermore, the reporter added that the player himself ‘is happy to join Milan’ and talks have been going on for two weeks.
AC Milan & Chelsea will be in direct contact again for Hakim Ziyech deal. Negotiations started two weeks ago and still ongoing to agree on the final formula. 🇲🇦 #ACMilan

The parties still need to agree on the formula, which was expected seeing as Milan want it to be a loan with an option to buy. The compromise might be an obligation to buy, thus guaranteeing Chelsea money from the exit.
It remains to be seen what the outcome of the situation will be but it’s clear that Milan’s interest in the player is concrete. It makes a lot of sense as Stefano Pioli wants a player that can play in the centre and also to the right in the attacking trio.
