The young french midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is now a hot subject among the transfer rumors. It is not yet clear that whether he is back to Chelsea or will stay at AC Milan.

Chelsea now facing a two-window transfer ban which prevents them signing players until the summer of 2020 and for this reason, the return of Bakayoko and other loaned players will be ideal for them for the coming season.

Bakayoko joined AC Milan on loan with an option to buy last summer. The Rossoneri can make the player’s move permanent for £35 million.

But Bakayoko is not in a good relationship with manager Gennaro Gattuso and his poor behavior during the last month may convince the Serie A giants to send the player back to Stamford Bridge.

At the same time midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has been diagnosed with a ruptured Achilles injury and could face 12-month out of action. So Chelsea are thinking of welcoming the Frenchman back to London to fill the gap.

The young French midfielder did not impress the blues under Antonio Conte and the disappointment sent him to Milan.

Under Gattuso he started dominating the midfield. He established balance within the team with his performances at DM, he relieved the defense of a lot of responsibility and he became the reason why his two midfield compatriots, Lucas Paquetá and Franck Kessie. However, compared to his time in Chelsea, a big improvement has been accomplished.

The Sun has reported that Bakayoko is set to be sent back to Chelsea as AC Milan is not ready for the £35 million option to sign him.
