In an exclusive interview granted to Milannews.it, Marco Busiello, the agent of Chelsea midfielder Tiémoué Bakayoko, has spoken about AC Milan‘s interest on his client ahead of the next summer transfer window. Here is what he said:
“Bakayoko had a wonderful experience at Milan, just as the Rossoneri club found a very serious player who left a good memory. We had a meeting a few weeks ago with Milan’s managers who are looking for a player in that position. This is a particular market, in which there is a need to sell before buying. Beyond Bakayoko, I believe that many hits will be realized later because first the clubs have to place some players before taking others. Milan want to do something in that role. Baka left a good memory and he has a good memory of Milan. The Rossoneri have to do something in that role, so we had some normal small talk that is done in these situations“.
“A loan is not viable with only one year on his contract? The problem is precisely this. There are two ways: either Bakayoko [will be] borrowed with obligation to redeem by 30 June 2022 or he must renew for another year with Chelsea. Otherwise the player must leave immediately and permanently”.
“Can this become an obstacle? Beyond the obstacles, Milan must do something in that area of the pitch. At the moment there are many evaluations, it will be a slow market.“
