Chelsea loanee, Bakayoko seek Milan exit

Oviri Kelvin, Sports Editor, Abuja

Following the unsatisfactory performance of Chelsea loanee, Tiemoué Bakayoko for Milan last season, the French midfielder was in Italy to discuss a possible exit from the club.

Bakayoko has only played one out of the two loan seasons in Milan but a drop in form saw him making only six starts last season for the Rossoneri.

With the player unhappy and looking to explore other options to further his career, he met with some of the directors in Milan to fashion a possible solution.

Milan are willing to allow the midfielder leave and will hold a meeting with Chelsea to find a solution since the player still has a year left to run in his contract with Milan and also Chelsea.

According to reports from Italy, the 27-year-old should he leave Milan, would not benefit from the Growth Decree law, which only comes into effect for players who stay at least two years.

More so, one of the player’s agents is presently in Lombardy to discuss with the Rossoneri about a possible exit for the player in the best interest of all parties, Calciomercato reported.

Chelsea signed Bakayoko from French Ligue 1 for a fee reportedly about £40m which made him the second-highest signing for the club after Spanish Fernando Torres at that time.

He made his debut in an away match against Tottenham where the Blues won 2-1. In that season, the Frenchman featured 29 times for Chelsea and scored two goals.

However, he was loaned to Milan for two seasons before moving to Napoli. Chelsea sent him on a second two-year loan spell to San Siro but the player has inarguably unimpressed Stefano Pioli, warranting him to seek a move out of the club.
