It sounds like Tiémoué Bakayoko wants to stay at Milan, but can Milan afford to keep him?
Bakayoko was quoted as saying:
I’ve carried on training and working hard, and when you do that things change.
I’m happy because I’m playing well with the team. The future? I’m happy here but it’s not my decision, it’s Milan and Chelsea’s.
We’ll talk at the end of the season to see what we can do.
The buy-out clause is pretty steep for Bakayoko, with a rumored fee of £32 million, but it’s doable. Milan have reportedly been trying to negotiate a discount for the midfielder, and if he wants to stay at Milan, that might help Milan out. He’s been playing pretty good for the past few weeks and so perhaps a permanent move would be best for everyone after his Chelsea career got off to a poor start last year.
