Bakayoko will be allowed to leave this summer


  • Chelsea not eager to keep Bakayoko at Stamford Bridge.
  • Italian giants AC Milan has shown interest but not too keen on the mid-fielder.

Chelsea are willing to let French midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko leave this summer amid interest from Serie A outfit AC Milan.

Bakayoko joined Chelsea from Monaco last summer for €40 million but failed to make any significant impression in his debut season, whilst struggling to nail a regular starting spot in the first team.

According to Calciomercato’s Fabrizio Romano, Bakayoko is not considered untransferable this summer and could be allowed to leave if the right offer comes.

It is believed the Maurizio Sarri considers Bakayoko not good enough for the physicality of the Premier League and also doesn’t fit into the demands of a free-flowing style of football.
