Tiemoue Bakayoko set for early Chelsea return?

Bakayoko heading for Chelsea return in January?

France international Tiemoue Bakayoko could be headed for a winter return to Chelsea after failing to convince AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso over his abilities.

The midfielder had an average debut season with the Blues during the previous campaign and this saw him deemed surplus to requirements after Maurizio Sarri took over at the helm in the summer.

As a result, Bakayoko made the move to the San Siro on a season-long loan with the option to buy but the Rossoneri already seem to have second thoughts over their decision.

According to The Mirror, Gattuso has been far from impressed by the Frenchman, who has been guilty of losing the possession of the ball and he is said to have just six more games to save his Rossoneri career.

Bakayoko currently has nearly four years remaining on his current deal with the Blues and there is every possibility that he could be loaned out once more, should Rossoneri decide to terminate the temporary contract.
