Chelsea receive Tiemoue Bakayoko update amid reports he could return early from AC Milan loan



ลิ้ง sbo Tiemoue Bakayoko will not be returning to Chelsea in January, according to reports in Italy. Joining AC Milan on a season-long deal with an option to buy back in August, the Frenchman's move to the San Siro has not gone to plan at all. Criticised for his debut against Napoli as the Rossoneri surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2, the player has in fact yet to start a league match during his time in Italy.

Starting in the team's Europa League games against Dudelange and Olympiacos, the French international was criticised for his display against the latter in the Italian press. Winning the game 3-1 at the San Siro having trailed 1-0, Corriere dello Sport's player ratings described Bakayoko's performance as a 'disaster'.

The same publication then reported that the player ลิ้ง sbo had been given six games to prove his worth to manager Gennaro Gattuso or his loan deal could be cut short. Sent away from Chelsea due to the vast numbers in midfield, Bakayoko would certainly struggle for game time at Stamford Bridge if he did indeed return at the turn of the year.

However, it appears that the 24-year-old will not be going anywhere once the transfer window reopens. In an interview with Italian outlet Calciomercato , Federico Pastorello, the intermediary of his loan move to Milan, has claimed that talk of a return to Chelsea is completely untrue.

"Bakayoko is happy at Milan and Milan are happy with him," he said, as reported by Football Italia . "We knew it would take some time, but everyone believes ลิ้ง sbo he can make a big contribution to the Rossoneri this season. "Therefore, any rumours about his return to Chelsea in January are completely unfounded."
