Claim From Italy: AC Milan Take Decision On Tiemoue Bakayoko


AC Milan have decided against taking up the option on Chelsea loanee Tiemoue Bakayoko and he is now expected to be back in England at the end of the season.

Bakayoko joined the Rossoneri on a season-long loan deal last year with AC Milan reserving an option to buy the midfielder on a permanent deal for a fee of €35m.

Following a difficult start to his time in Italy, the Frenchman managed to convince AC Milan about his quality and has been a key player this season.

But AC Milan’s budgetary concerns and his recent disciplinary issues have pushed the club towards taking an early call on his future at the San Siro, it has been claimed.


And according to Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset, the Rossoneri will not be taking up the option on signing Bakayoko on a permanent deal from Chelsea.

With AC Milan losing ground on a top four finish and potential limitations on their budget next season, the club are claimed to have have decided against investing €35m in the midfielder.

Bakayoko’s recent performances and his disciplinary issues seemed to have helped the club to come to a decision sooner rather than later.


Chelsea have already been fielding enquiries for him ahead of the summer, but if the Blues are operating under a transfer ban it remains to be seen if they still choose to sell Bakayoko.
