Chelsea Transfer News: Tiemoue Bakayoko's loan was agreed with AC Milan | Bleacher Report

Chris Brunskill / Fantasista / Getty Images Chelsea announced a one-season loan with AC Milan for French midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko. The agreement provides for the option for the Serie A team to buy the 23 year-old permanent for £ 35.56 million, according to Sky in Italy (h / t Sky Sports). Bakayoko will have a medical Monday before completing his transfer to San Siro, according to the report. The midfielder arrived at Chelsea last summer from Monaco after playing a key role in helping the Ligue 1 side won the French title. However, he struggled to live up to his £ 40m price at Stamford Bridge and found it difficult to adapt to the Premier League. The chances of regular football this season seem even thinner after Chelsea has moved to strengthen their midfield. Jorginho came from Napoli and Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid. The Blues also have Ross Barkley, Danny Drinkwater and Cesc Fabregas in the team, which means that the competition for the places is fierce. Bakayoko was the protagonist in the pre-season but did not seem too impressive, according to Mark Worrall of ESPN FC: Mark Worrall @ gate17marcoHalf-time. Just to say it, the combination of Drinkwater / Bakayoko midfielder dominated Chelsea and influenced the opportunities of those around them.The transfer window of the Premier League has been closed, but remains open throughout Europe, and the Blues can still sell and lend the players. The new manager Maurizio Sarri said that Bakayoko is a player he could leave, for Liam Twomey of ESPN FC: Liam Twomey @liam_twomeySarri in his team: "Now I think the team is too big, so some players have to go in loan but I do not "I know who. I prefer to have 23, 24 players and three, four very young players. "Asked if Bakayoko could be one:" Maybe ". #CfcChelsea has already agreed to lend to marginal players like Kurt Zouma and Michy Batshuayi as they cut their team. Bakayoko seems to be next on the list. A start from Stamford Bridge seems like a good option for a player who is only 23 but seems to have lost himself in London. The football analyst Matteo Bonetti explained how he could be used at AC Milan: Matteo Bonetti @ TheCalcioGuyIn 4-3 of Milan- 3, Bakayoko would almost certainly be used as a mid-wing – and I can not imagine him playing in front of Kessie or Bonaventura. Nothing wrong with adding depth, though. We hope that Tiemoue can find his confidence and regain his Monaco form in a new championship.At his best, Bakayoko is a dynamic and aggressive midfielder capable of taking control of the games. He hopes that a move for AC Milan can help him rediscover the form shown in Monaco and bring his career back on track. .
