Unfortunately for Tiemoué Bakayoko, all his good work over the past couple of months, having managed to turn his season around, won’t get him a prolonged stay at Milan.

Gazzetta dello Sport are the ones announcing it on Friday, as they evaluate the Serie A side’s summer spending and what the future holds for said players.

The Chelsea loanee, despite starting the season horribly, managed to gain the trust of his manager after a handful of decent performances, and quickly turned himself into a key player in Gennaro Gattuso’s plans at San Siro.

That being said, the FFP restrictions Milan are currently fighting mean that the €35m clause inserted in the deal taking him from Stamford Bridge for the season won’t be triggered come season’s end, as the Italian simply can’t afford it.

Having already put €5m on the table to secure the loan, the Serie A outfit are preparing themselves to wave the Frenchman goodbye, meaning a return to Chelsea, where he doesn’t fall into Maurizio Sarri’s plans, is extremely likely.

That means the Blues will probably have to find him a new exit route in June, which they were hoping to avoid with the Milan deal.
