Tiémoué Bakayoko will become a new Milan player very soon, he’s expected in the city this evening.
After doing a bit of a house cleaning with Nikola Kalinić, Andre Silva, Luca Antonelli and Manuel Locatelli (not yet official) leaving, Leonardo and Paolo Maldini are close to securing a new signing.
As reported by Sportmediaset and later confirmed by Milannews.it and Sky, an agreement has been reached between Milan and Chelsea for Bakayoko.
Bakayoko, 23, will arrive to Milan on loan with option to buy. There are different reports regarding the figures: some say it is €5m for the loan plus €30m option, while other say the option is €35m. Mediaset, meanwhile, claims the option is for €38m but makes no mention of the fee of the loan.
The Frenchman is expected in the city already tonight and could therefore have his medical with the club tomorrow. He’ll be the team’s 6th signing after Reina, Strinić, Halilović, Caldara and Higuain.
