Chelsea prepared to sell 25-year-old midfielder for £31m

Chelsea ready to sell Tiemoue Bakayoko

Chelsea are willing to sanction the departure of Tiemoue Bakayoko during the summer, should any side meet their £31m price tag.

The Frenchman joined the Blues from AS Monaco back in 2017 but he failed to impress in his debut season where he made 29 league appearances.

He has since spent time on loan with AC Milan and Monaco and recently returned from the latter after the French football season was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Le 10 Sport, the Blues are prepared to part ways with Bakayoko on a permanent basis as they require funds for their summer transfer business.

It is added that the club will accept offers of around £31m for the France international, which is £9m less than what they paid for his services three years ago.

At the moment, no side is willing to meet that package. Paris Saint-Germain are reluctant to pay more than £26.5m and it remains to be seen whether the Blues are willing to re-negotiate the price tag.
