Chelsea loanee Tiemoue Bakayoko has revealed that it’s his “dream’ to stay with AC Milan and seal a permanent move to the Italian giants.
Bakayoko, who signed for the Blues from Monaco in the summer of 2017, flopped during his first season at Stamford Bridge, with the player subsequently being loaned to Milan last summer as a result.
The French international has since been a fantastic signing for the Rossoneri, with the player himself seemingly also enjoying his spell in Italy if his words are anything to go by.
As per the Sun, who are re-reporting from Corriere dello Sport, Bakayoko has stated that “staying at Milan is my dream and the fixed thought in my mind, but I have a contract with Chelsea”
These words probably won’t come as a surprise to most, as Bakayoko was very poor for Chelsea during the 2017/18 season, thus it’s hardly shocking to hear the player would rather stay in Italy than go back to west London.
It doesn’t seem like there’d be much room for Bakayoko at Chelsea should he end up returning to the Blues, as the west London club already have stars like N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek to choose from in the centre of the park.
This is something that may have played a part in Bakayoko’s want to remain at AC Milan, news that will surely be great to hear for fans of the Italian giants.
