Tiemoue Bakayoko’s situation at Milan has reached a critical point.
He’s on a two year loan deal, but he’s already considered very much surplus to requirements after just one season.
He’s been in preseason training with the group, but hasn’t featured in either of their friendlies, which tells you exactly what the manager thinks of him.
SempreMilan lay out the situation clearly – he’s not a part of Stefano Pioli’s project, and his agents are trying to make a move happen. Chelsea are pretty secure here – Milan have signed up to a two year deal, and unless they can find a new home for him, he’s stuck with them.
As it stands, it’s hard to see who would want him, but it’s probably best for everyone is he accepts another step down the ladder to a midtable team somewhere where he can play every week.
His career is spiralling down quite tragically now.
