Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has made the move to AC Milan on a two-year loan deal.

The Frenchman has spent the past three seasons away on loan, and he has now returned to the Rossoneri.

The 27-year-old was previously with the club between 2018 and 2019. He was desperate to rejoin them.

Milan previously rejected an option to re-sign him permanently as they did not want to pay a €40m fee.

Bakayoko has now rejoined them on loan for two seasons. The club have a buy clause which may vary.

Based on the performances of the player and club, the final valuation for a transfer could be between €15-20m.

Bakayoko's Blues contract was due to expire in June next year. He has signed a two-year extension before leaving.

The Blues are planning at least one big-name signing before the deadline. They have their sights on landing Jules Kounde.

Sevilla recently increased their valuation of the centre-back. The Blues must pay at least €65m up front for the Frenchman.
