Chelsea and AC Milan have reached an agreement over the transfer of 26-year-old midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko according to the latest reports emanating from Italy.
It was revealed by popular transfer guru Fabrizio Romano that the Chelsea midfielder will sign for AC Milan on loan for the entire duration of this season with the option of a permanent deal at the end of his loan spell at the San Siro.
According to him, San Siro outfit AC Milan will pay just €3m for his loan fee with the option of making the transfer a permanent one for €30m.

Tiemoue Bakayoko will be joining AC Milan on loan for the second time having spent the entire 2018/19 campaign with the seven-time European champions. He scored just one goal in 31 league games for the Rossoneri during his first loan spell.
He also spent last season on loan at former club AS Monaco.
Tiemoue Bakayoko clearly has no future at Chelsea under Frank Lampard despite having two years left on his Blues deal. He signed a five-year contract when he signed for the Blues in 2017.
The French player was part of the AS Monaco team that surprisingly reached the Champions League semi-finals in 2017 and it was his performances that earned him a big money transfer to Chelsea that summer.
