Sky: Milan consider two alternatives as Chelsea play hard ball on €33m Bakayoko deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are considering two alternatives as they have not yet found a deal with Chelsea for Tiemoue Bakayoko, a report claims.

According to what was reported by Sky Italia on Friday night (via MilanLive), Milan have not yet managed to get a deal over the line for Bakayoko.

The Rossoneri are in dialogue with Chelsea and there is the principle of an agreement based on a €3m paid loan, while the option to buy could be around €30m. There is no agreement with the player regarding his salary for the years following the first, if he were to join permanently.

The alternatives are Boubakary Soumaré and Florentino Luis of Lille and Benfica respectively. Paolo Maldini spoke with the agent of the latter and contacts could be intensified if the Bakayoko deal does not go through, because the €30m demands from Chelsea are considered excessive by Milan.

There was a survey for the Lille midfielder, but the costs are very high.
