There are two obstacles in the way regarding a return to Milan for Tiemoue Bakayoko, a report claims, but the player is desperate for it to happen.
According to Monday’s edition of the newspaper Tuttosport (via MilanLive), the 25-year-old will not be joining Monaco permanently despite the fact that the loan deal has an option to buy built in.
The player is holding out for a move to Milan but there are many other factors involved, including at least two large economic hurdles.
Probable next manager Ralf Rangnick for his part would gladly welcome Bakayoko into his new project, but the figures needed are substantial.
For starters, Bakayoko would have to take a pay cut of at least 50% on his current €6.5million salary, while it is believed that Chelsea will demand around €35million to sell their 2017 summer signing.
That’s why the deal to date seems almost impossible. He would be a perfect companion for Ismael Bennacer in the engine room of the midfield, but it does not seem likely at present.
