Another exit looms for Chelsea star

Emerging reports have claimed that the West London outfit Chelsea are set to part ways with their star midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko for another season on a loan deal.

Tiemoue Bakayoko only returned from a loan spell at the Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan where he eventually became a regular and was handed 41 appearances by manager Gennaro Gattuso.

Now it is reported that Tiemoue Bakayoko would be sent on another loan spell after the club received an approach from the Inter Milan but the terms of the contract will include an option of a buy if he impresses them.

The Sun reports that Inter Milan could finally land Tiemoue Bakayoko at San Siro on a permanent deal with a fee of £35 million in view.

It is not clear if Tiemoue Bakayoko would be asked to return back to the Stamford Bridge as he is not in the plans of Italian manager Maurizio Sarri but that could change if the former Napoli boss is sacked.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have got a number of options in the middle including N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley.

It is claimed that the former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte made the request for the star player after working together at Stamford Bridge in the 2017-18 season.
