Tiemoue Bakayoko wants Chelsea stay and is determined to fight for his place after AC Milan loan

FRESH START

The midfielder struggled in his first season at Chelsea but rediscovered his form in Italy

Tiemoue Bakayoko is ready to return and fight for his place at Chelsea following a season-long loan at AC Milan.

After a terrible debut season in the Premier League, Bakayoko was shipped out to Milan on loan, where he eventually rediscovered the form which made the Blues pay £40million to sign him from Monaco in 2017.

Bakayoko wants to stay at Chelsea

The French midfielder still has three years left on his Chelsea deal and will not be signing with Milan, who failed to qualify for the Champions League on a permanent deal.

“There are some pretty interesting, quite big clubs that have inquired, but we give priority to Chelsea,” Abdoulaye Bakayoko, his brother and agent, told L’Equipe.


“We already know, there is the Champions League and we are looking for stability. Tiemoue has decided to stay there.”

Bakayoko featured briefly during pre-season under Maurizio Sarri, but the Italian coach immediately decided he was not part of his long-term plans, having recruited Jorginho from Napoli.

The 24-year-old admitted in February it would be a ‘dream’ to make his loan move a permanent one when the transfer window reopens this summer.

In his first season at Stamford Bridge, Bakayoko played 43 times and scored three times.
