AC Milan have signed Tiémoué Bakayoko on loan two summers ago with the hope that he can recreate the form he had with the Rossoneri team under the guidance of Gennaro Gattuso in his first loan spall at the San Siro. However, that did not go well as he failed to impress the fans and Stefano Pioli.
The player did not leave Milan during that whole period. Now, his 2-year-loan deal has ended with the Italians but it seems that his adventure with the London-based club has also come to an end.
As per Chelsea's official statement, the player has left the club. Here's the English outfit's statement:
"The list of players retained by Chelsea for the 2023/24 season has been published by the Premier League, with Tiemoue Bakayoko’s departure from the club now confirmed.
The midfielder joined the Blues from Monaco back in 2017 and featured frequently under Antonio Conte, clocking up 43 appearances and playing the whole of the 2018 FA Cup final win over Manchester United. He scored three goals during that campaign. The Frenchman subsequently embarked on several loans, including back to Monaco and at AC Milan when they won Serie A.
We thank Tiemoue for his contribution during his season at Stamford Bridge."
