Bakayoko wants permanent AC Milan transfer as flop has subtle dig at Chelsea

Bakayoko wants permanent AC Milan transfer as flop has subtle dig at Chelsea

February 6, 2019

The Frenchman has become Gennaro Gattuso's key player this season despite a difficult start to his Serie A career.

Bakayoko was loaned to Milan last summer leaving Chelsea just year after completing his £40m move from Monaco.

His beginnings at San Siro turned out to be difficult as he managed to start his first Serie A game only in October.

But following a string of impressive performances the 24-year-old midfielder is now one of Milan's key players – hoping to help Rossoneri return to the Champions League for the first time since 2014.

Football fans even joked Liverpool's Naby Keita makes him "look like Pirlo" after the Guinean's horror display against West Ham on Monday night.

And Bakayoko said he would like to commit his future to the Italian giants, who he claimed are on a "different planet" compared to his parent club Chelsea.

He told Nice Matin: "Things are going well for the club and I right now.

"There wasn't a turning point. I just wanted to show that I was good enough for a big club. Milan are on a different planet.

"I was greeted by Maldini and Leonardo on my first day and and you immediately realise who you're dealing with.

"Then you have the atmosphere at San Siro, which is extraordinary. Milan are a legendary club. Who wouldn't like to stay at a club like Milan for a long time?"

"Having said that, I'm still under contract with Chelsea for the next three years. I don't have all the cards."
