Chelsea are expected to be taken advantage of by AC Milan after finalising their loan deal for Gonzalo Higuain for the remainder of the season.
The Argentine is currently being processed into the final stages of his transfer but Gennaro Gattuso has plans of exploiting the Blues for the sudden switch.
Milan currently have Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko on a season-long loan spell. So far the Frenchman has really impressed for the Serie A side after spending a horrific debut season at the Stamford Bridge.
Now Italian journalist, Luca Serafino reports that the Rossoneri would be allowed to acquire Bakayoko’s services permanently next summer at a discounted rate due to their compromise in the Higuain trade.
They buy-back clause inserted in the defensive midfielder’s deal might be lowered slightly when the time comes to activate the said clause. Bakayoko’s improvements on the pitch has earned the praise of Gattuso who has also made the 24-year-old a regular figure at the San Siro.
Chelsea, on the other hand, currently have an adequate talent pool of Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Charles Barkley, Matteo Kovacic and Danny Drinkwater. The Blues are trying to sell Drinkwater and Kovacic might be sent back to Real Madrid after the completion of his loan spell in June.
Bakayoko’s Chelsea career is understandably over after a torrid first stint and the Frenchman clearly does not fit into Maurizio Sarri’s high passing system.
