Tuttosport: Chelsea could repeat Giroud tactic as Milan want midfield outcast

By Isak Möller -

Milan still have many positions left to reinforce and one of them is the centre-midfield, as Soualiho Meite has returned to Torino. They have set their sights on one of their former players, according to a report. 

According to today’s edition of Tuttosport, as cited by MilanLive, the Rossoneri are seriously thinking about bringing back Tiemoue Bakayoko. They are seemingly willing to make a deal with Chelsea, even on a permanent basis.

The midfielder’s contract will expire in 2022 and Milan will be looking to exploit it. In addition to the contractual situation, Bakayoko isn’t considered an important player in the squad and the transfer fee thus most likely wouldn’t be hefty.

However, Chelsea could change the balance of the situation by activating a one-year renewal clause, just like they did with Olivier Giroud. This could prevent them from losing the 26-year-old for a very low figure, perhaps causing problems for Milan.

    Bakayoko’s contract doesn’t have a clause like that. Chelsea have no option at extending for an extra year.

    “Isn’t considered an important player”. If he is not important for Chelsea, is he important for Milan? Or are we a Serie B team ?

      Bakayoko for a fourth choice Midfield is pretty solid imo. Idc about the words by the writer here whether he is important for Chelsea or not. Having Bakayoko as fourth choice , a player who knows us. Is pretty good

    I wish a rich ACM fan billionaire will buy club one day. Converting a great football club into American investment puppet is a strong way to end up as a donor for other clubs. Selling talented youngsters for almost free, putting on risk important players like Kessie and reducing transfer budgets on bleeding positions… I hope it ends one day.
