Tiemoue Bakayoko linked with loan move to AC Milan

Transfer news

Now though Sky is reporting that talks are well advanced for Bakayoko, with a loan with option to buy being discussed.

Our delight at Bakayoko's impending departure may seem a little harsh, but from a purely footballing perspective, it's good news that Maurizio Sarri will not be burdened with him, as Antonio Conte was last season.

Bakayoko did not feature for Chelsea in last Sunday's Community Shield defeat by Manchester City.

The French midfielder struggled during his first season in London after a big-money move from Monaco and is set to fall out of favour at Stamford Bridge.

Jorginho, Kante and Ross Barkley are likely to be the trio that start in midfield when Chelsea face Huddersfield in their opening Premier League clash today (3pm), say the Mirror.

"Next year I will try and change pre-season completely, if I can".

Speaking after the game, he insisted that he is not looking to leave his current club while mentioning Barca's attempts to sign him.

"We are very happy to welcome Mateo to the Chelsea family".
