Italian website Calcio Mercato has some updates today on the situation of Chelsea loanee Tiemoué Bakayoko.

They say it’s very unlikely that Monaco will make his transfer permanent at the end of the season, and that opens several possibilities for his future.

It’s claimed that Frank Lampard finds no use in the Frenchman, and that’s why his return to Chelsea shouldn’t be something for the long term.

Following the loan spell Bakayoko spent at Milan during the 2018/19 season, it’s now said he ‘dreams’ of going back to the club.

Calcio Mercato states that Milan actually got close to signing him in January, when they spoke both to Chelsea and Monaco. What blocked the Rossoneri from completing the transfer was that they’ve failed to sell Franck Kessie, who was repeatedly linked with a move to the Premier League.

It’s said that Bakayoko has recently ‘sent a sign’ to the Italian side showing he continues to like the idea of returning. However, the club consider his price to be a problem.
