Tiemoue Bakayoko has hinted through his entourage that he’s eager on a permanent come back to AC Milan this summer after a successful loan spell last campaign. France international is also a hit with prospective new manager Ralf Rangnick while adding that the midfielder became a fan favourite of sorts during his loan spell.
Due to Rossoneri facing a struggle to stay in line with Financial Fair Play rules they were banned from European tournaments last time they broke them a maximum salary cap of €3m per year will be imposed. It’s added that the current team, except Gianluigi Donnarumma, will be asked to settle at between €2-2.5m.
Tiemoue currently earns €6.5m a year, which works out to €125,000-a-week, the midfielder would have to a cut of more than half to head back to Milan. Bakayoko would have to accept such a wage cut as the Rossoneri will already be strapped because the London giants may not budge on their €35m valuation of the midfielder.
The 25-year-old midfielder would be an ideal signing due to his successful spell last campaign, he’d be able to come in and transform the side’s midfield which has perhaps been the single most unflattering area for the club as of late. The Frenchman is currently on loan at former club Monaco, but the Ligue 1 club don’t wish to re-sign the midfielder.
The French midfielder played 42 games across all tournaments for Milan last campaign, considering Tiemoue was rejuvenated at the San Siro it’s not surprising to read that Bakayoko wants a return to Italy. Things haven’t worked out for Timoue at Stamford Bridge.
