Milan set to sign Chelsea midfielder on loan

Milan are expected to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko on loan from Chelsea next week, claim multiple Italian sources.

The French midfielder turns 24 later this month and only came to Stamford Bridge a year ago at a cost of €40m from Monaco.

According to the Corriere della Sera, Sky Sport Italia and more, a deal is practically done for Milan to take Bakayoko on loan for the 2018-19 campaign.

He is expected to have a medical next week and put pen to paper, although an option to buy is also being considered.

New Chelsea Coach Maurizio Sarri confessed the player could “maybe” leave this summer, as he is pushed out by Jorginho.
