Tiemoue Bakayoko wants to end his Chelsea nightmare and will even take a fifty percent pay cut to force a move to San Siro.

After starting brightly at Stamford Bridge, injuries and form took their toll on Tiemoue Bakayoko. Chelsea were left ruing the €40m they spent on the French midfielder.

Loans to AC Milan and AS Monaco did not change his status in West London. Frank Lampard does not view him as part of his first-team and will allow him to leave. 

According to MilanNews.It, the recent developments have opened the way for the Rossoneri to secure his services. 

The Serie A side were unwilling to meet Chelsea’s €40 million asking price after his successful loan spell. The Blues are now asking for €30 million and Milan want to do business. 

To make sure that the deal goes through, Bakayoko is willing to take a pay cut. He is on an annual contract of €6 million but will reduce his demands to €3 million to force a move away.

With Bakayoko’s contract ending in June of 2022, Chelsea are willing to send him on loan now and a permanent deal expected a year later.
