Tuttosport via MilanLive.it are reporting that the path for AC Milan to sign Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is still blocked as both parties stand firm on their requests. The player has agreed personal terms and the clubs have a deal in principle but are blocked over the value of the buy out clause.
Nicolo Schira is now reporting that Bakayoko is pushing for the return to the Serie A with Milan and has reportedly rejected three deals thus far. The report notes that Maldini is waiting to sell Rade Krunic likely to Freiburg before making the final move for Bakayoko. The deal will be a loan with an option to buy.
Calcio Mercato are reporting that Bakayoko's name is dominating the discussions at Casa Milan for the moment and is expected to be one of the tracks coming to a conclusion soon. Milan will reportedly speak to Chelsea again after the Europa League fixture with Shamrock Rovers on Thursday.
