Milan are reportedly in advanced talks with Chelsea to get the go ahead for a loan deal to bring Tiemoue Bakayoko back to San Siro this summer.
The French midfielder spent last season on loan at Napoli with former Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso, who was in the stands when the Rossoneri picked up a 1-0 win over Sampdoria on Monday night.
Brahim Diaz: ‘A good performance’
While Milan were busy playing, Tuttomercatoweb reported the directors were in talks with the Blues over Bakayoko’s return to Milanello.
The midfielder spent one season with the Diavolo in 2018-19 and moved back to AS Monaco the following year.
Bakayoko has turned 27 and has one year left on his deal with Chelsea, who will renew with the midfielder if they decide to send him out on loan.
Milan are optimistic and the report believes there are only a few details missing before Chelsea give the green light for the operation to be completed.
