One of the agents who brought Tiémoué Bakayoko to Milan has claimed that the club is content with the midfielder.

Tiémoué joined in the summer on loan with option from Chelsea and has yet to find his place at Milan as he hasn’t been overly impressive in his performances playing as a regista or as a mezz’ala.

A report from il Corriere dello Sport, which claimed that Milan were unhappy with Bakayoko and are willing to cut his loan short in January was echoed by the English tabloids last week.

However, Federico Pastorello, who was an intermediary in the deal that brought the 24-year-old Frenchman to Milan, claims that there is no truth in the claims.

“Bakayoko is happy at Milan and Milan are happy with him,” Pastorello said to “We knew it’d take some time, but everyone believes he can make a big contribution to the Rossoneri this season. Therefore, any rumours about his return to Chelsea in January are completely unfounded.”

The season is still very long and Bakayoko will have more chances to prove his worth. In any case, Milan continue to think of January and in addition to Lucas Paquetá there will be more signings.


  1. He might turn out to be decent-ish in the second half of the season. But would be better if he just leaves and we can get someone else to be b2b/dm instead of him.
    Maybe some of our youth.

    • I do see some defensive talent in him, but he’s way of playing is so paculiar and odd that I don’t know if he can realize it for our profit.

      • Baka is a monster, full of talent, I don’t understand what’s wrong with him. Maybe he’s not suitable for the 4-3-3 system, but a real player should show his value in every role. We have at Primavera Torrasi, Brescianini, Frigerio, Brambilla and Mionic. And Pobega loaned at Ternana ( very good mezzala ), but we need more quality in this moment. A player we must pay attention is Capanni, our LW player who made 2 assists in the friendly game against Primavera, very interesting player

  2. As much as i want him to rise up his level and stay , i can’t just deny the fact that getting Barrlla will be a hundred times better , and with no huge difference in their price.
