Tiémoué Bakayoko will be in Milano this weekend, while Tommaso Pobega heads to Torino on loan.

The transfer window ends next week and Milan still have some deals to make. Today, they finally got a done deal with Chelsea for the return of Bakayoko.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky, Milannews.it, and other outlets – today the Rossoneri found a total agreement with Chelsea for a deal that will see Bakayoko wearing Red and Black again.

The Frenchman will be in Milano between Friday night and Saturday morning to have his medical with the Diavolo and then sign the contract. Bakayoko comes on a two-year loan deal with option to buy for €15m; the option would become obligatory if certain conditions are met. Tiémoué will first extend his contract with Chelsea until 2024, as his current deal with them expires in 2022.

The first time Bakayoko joined Milan was August 14, 2018. He moved from Chelsea on the exact same formula and despite playing 42 games and scoring one goal, Milan chose to send him back to the Blues. Chelsea still deem him surplus to requirements and are now sending him on loan for the 4th year in a row. Baka was at Monaco in 2019-20 and then at Napoli with Rino Gattuso last year.

With Bakayoko joining, Tommaso Pobega is leaving: the young Italian is heading to Torino on loan and tomorrow he’ll have his medical with the team of Ivan Jurić.

Transfer with a score of 10 out of 10, bravo Maldini / Masara. Now we urgently need another right wing in place of Casti and a playmaker like Isko and we are complete.

Rico

Welcome Baka!!!…all the best

Rossi

Can we finnaly buy a RW now?

Mr.Milan

Welcome Bakayoko and thanks to Maldini for another promising signing. I’m still optimistic about this management giving us two or three more signings to bolster out team quality,due to the fact that we have been drawn in group B.

tcl00

I think this is a good piece of business. I hope Acerbi can sleep well soon (:chuckles) Bakayoko should try to prove himself and revisit his Monaco form. 26-29 should be the peak of player’s game.

Ice yogurt

What’s with acerbi?

Ted

Legend says he’s still lost somewhere in Bakayoko’s pocket

Taal

Cuz baka n kessei made a mockery of acerbi the last time he was here

Gbenga AJOSE

At last !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oluwashevy

Chelsea knows how to deal with Milan bakayoko contract expiring next summer but before he comes he will sign till 2024 and we buy him for 15m but if we wait we can get him for free but base on the urgency in that midfield area we need him but this is the same thing there did for Giroud his contract as expired but got renewed so we can pay 2m for him it’s wise same thing am expecting our management to learn don’t let ur stars go for free aside for samu and krunic anyway it’s a good buy… Read more »

Caesar

Incase you don’t know, Krunic should be worth at least 15m. You guys really under rate that boy. Krunic is Pioli’s favorite player because he is able to give at least 50/100 rating in any position he is called to play in, not many players in the whole wide world can do that.

Ted

Precisely

Baresis Dream

Still, he can be a decent sub sometimes, nothing more. Pioli won’t play him as much when our squad is complete and fully fit. At the end of the day, he’s not a player for a top European team, even as a squad player, and that’s what we aim to be.

TruRossoneri

It seems our Champions League group has scared them. Now, they have stop fooling around…lmao!

Ac milan

We should offer city Kessie + 20 mil for Silva

Ice yogurt

What about Tottenham or Liverpool? Which one we should get if we swap with those two teams?

Deku

Liverpool is too set with their starters, we wouldn’t get anyone valuable. Tottenham on the other hand has Ndombele, Lo Celso, Dele Ali

Ashraf

You mad and sick even for free we don’t want that slow player kasie + 20 ml hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh no one wants that slow pussy

Deku

That slow Kessie can completely shut down de Bruyne single handedly.

Ashraf

Am not talking about kassie am talking Silva that slow ass hole kassie is fucking footballer

Cocor

NO!!!!! Not isco , beside he don’t want to come he tries to prove his qualities make Ancelloti up set .
Why not Faivre.

Roberto Giano

We have become the strongest team in defense

Roberto Giano

I believe Florenzi is better than Saelemaker in supporting the attack

Roberto Giano

the last problem is the CAM. Diaz is potential but he can’t do it alone, besides, he is more like a trequartista.

Roberto Giano

so the playmaker will rely on Bennacer. So he is better accompanied by Bakayoko who is better in defense than Kessie

Roberto Giano

Maignan
Calabria-Kjaer-Tomori-Theo
Bennacer-Bakayoko
Florenzi-Diaz-Leao/Rebic
Ibra
PERFECT !

Caesar

With Bakayoko in the team, Tonali will be tried in the CAM position along side Brahim and I am strongly convinced that the boy can deliver in that position

Ted

No, Tonali will never be CAM, he’s a true regista. Rewatch Sampdoria match with last 10 minutes when Pioli shifted to 352 with Tonali in the deep midfield role. Completely different player. Bennacer is more of a CAM material, a player quite similar to Verratti.

Baresis Dream

Agreed ted, but same is true for bennacer – he’s a pure mezzele if ever there was one. I also think Tonali is more of a mezzala than a regista, but he seems definitely capable in that role.

Ice yogurt

We need CAM and RW. Conti Casti out and my biggest concern is Kessie situation. If he wont renew pls sell him asap

dapito

hei maldini and massara, if milan get offer for kessie with high price just take it… stop playing wasting time for kessie…what a cr**… i dont understand what’s on their mind until hakan and gigi go for FREE… and now we have same condition about kessie…

Niels8

They are expecting offers. That’s also why they quickly got Baka back..
I just hope that the decisions benefit Milan economically.

Niels8

Does anyone know how much his salary is?

AC Milan

Expect a reduced salary.

Oluwashevy

Am sure kessie would love to play for Milan if not for anything atlist this season he would want to play CL and still establish himself more but if he is not renewing he should be sold Milan is not a club players will come establish themself and leaves for free the management should do something about it fast

Serpent of Mondinna

All we are trying to say is give our president a new contract.

Ac milan

He is not president unlike the real and the only Weah.

Riccardo Montolivo

There is a strong message, Milan is above everyone, if Kessie wants to leave it’s fine, we need to understand that we are not a top club yet, it’s a damn shame but we are growing players that can play at top clubs.

Bakayoko has completely different qualities, I highly doubt that Kessie will lose his starting role but we got a very good substitute.

Finally 4 great DM players. We need a RW and we are set.

If we are going to lose Kessie why not swap him with a RW right now?

Rossi

Exactly, if we cant pay his salary or if he wants to leave, sell now or swap him for RW. Anything is better than loosing him for free next summer. Same with Romagnoli.

Ac milan

Roma actually showed his will to stay. He just need to sign. Kessie wants to play in EPL for higher wage.

Niels8

The problem is right now only Tottenham want Kessie, while they are not in Europe so Kessie might not want to go there, at least for now. So let’s brace ourselves for the worst case: another Donna-Calha.

Serpent of Mondinna

If Milan is above everyone why was zalatan given a contract abo

Ac milan

When was the last time we were in CL? That’s right, when Ibra was here. Ibra got back and we are in CL again. You think this is a coincidence? If Kessie came here all of sudden we are in CL every year, then he made a huge impact. I guess not so much huh? This is why management is smart to pay people who is actually worthy. Not individuals who’s only interested in $. Been a troll or an inter fan, I understand that you won’t get it. Us Milan fans understand the value now. That is why players… Read more »

Geez you are slow.

agree, if milan get offer just take it… dont playing time just like hakan and gigi…

Rossi

Milan better not miss on Faivre for just 2.5mil. They wont find a better player for that cheap.The more they wait the bigger the chance for some other team to get this talent.

dapito

with only 3 days, i wish we must get the right men for AM or RW… i hope isnot junior messias… corona or faivre will be great…

Rossi

Agreed.

Ice yogurt

News said intermerda wants him. Kondogbias deja vu anyone

Nino

The Kessie situation is becoming pathetic. From 2.5m, Milan propose 6m — which is more than a 100% increase. That’s big. Now, Kessie may think he deserves more — which is understandable — but as it were what Milan is offering is fair. Kessie doesn’t have to sign a 5-year contact. He can sign a 3-year contract at 6m and move on afterwards. But to pull the same stunt that Donnarumma and Çalhanôglu pulled would be despicable. He could and should have stated as soon as he got back after the Olympics that he wants out. At least, that was… Read more »

ZionTrain

Milan should have handled this contract renewal last season with Kessie. Once again they dropped the ball on another top player’s contract. There’s no excuse.

If I was Kessie I would have done the same thing because now the ball is in Kessie’s court. They waited all this time to renew his contract and let it ran down to 1 yr remaining like they did with Donnarumma and Calhanoglu? That makes no sense.

Pay him what he’s worth or lose him for free. Simple.

dapito

agree they never learn from donna or hakan… if they dont get offer just offer him to rich club or make swap player and get cash…

AC Milan

That just make him not one of us, does he? It’s not like we offered an raise of 1 mil. We offered + 3.5 mil. He is just been difficult because he wants to show that he is the most important figure for us, but he’s not. No player is bigger than the club. If he does not sign a reasonable offer like this, all we have to do is sell him, or put him on the bench. Why do you think we got Bakayoko in a hurry? Kessi was forcing our hands. Now the ball is back in our… Read more »

Ac milan

Pay him his worth? Then that would be like 5 mil, not what we offered which is 6.5 mil. Nicola Barella earned 4.1 mil. Do you know who earns around 8.5? Lukaku had a 8.8 mil with inter. So please tell you still believe what Kessie asked was justified.

Suspicious move from Kessie, I think he already agreed to move to other club. And If it Shinter, I won’t forgive!!!!

dapito

i think kessie just like donna, he want to make sure totenham get champion leaque next season…

AC Milan

I agree. He already got agreement with another EPL team. We made players including him and Dona, and we can undo that too by not playing them/or sell them. Dona went to PSG so he can be on the bench. Hakan lol, he will fail in a few games in inter then inter will realize what they really get. Now it’s Kessie’s turn. Once we get rid of most of who does not have strong heart with us, our tram will be much better. It is a team sports after all. This is also why team with best player (Messi… Read more »

Ted

There’s also his greedy agent who’s counting on big commission. There are reports Suprs are offering him 5 millions in commission if he brings Kessie. That, and a fact this management sucks at handling contract talks and renewals. They are unable to hold on to our assets and in the same time they are unable to sell of the deadwood.

Anyway there are players out there available on cheap who can replace Kessie like Tolisso and Kamara who are in last year of their contracts. Maybe even Ndombele.

The management is just something else I don’t know what there problem is honestly there can’t sell the dead woods in the club rather can there keep their stars with contract I simply don’t understand if kessie leaves for free won’t be happy in anyway with both parties Milan should learn this and learn it fast. It’s becoming a tradition the players will feel there can hold Milan for ransom to me if he don’t renew he should be sold with immediate effect I will feel less pain than when he is sold for free

AC Milan

The problem is that Kessie already got agreement with another EPL team (not legal). We made players including him and Dona, and we can undo that too by not playing them/or sell them. Dona went to PSG so he can be on the bench. Hakan lol, he will fail in a few games in inter then inter will realize what they really get. Now it’s Kessie’s turn.

Our management sucks at handling contract renewals because we have a rookie director of sports. Maldini doesn’t have the experience to handle these issues and they are waiting too long to get these renewals done. We can say what we want about Inter but they are doing the smartest thing from the top down. They hire juventus ex directors who have the experience of building a winning team and they have the right role for Zanetti as a club legend. Maybe Milan should take a leaf out of Inter book on building a winning team. We should have hired Ralf… Read more »

rich16

agreed. but, maldini didn’t want a role similar to Zanetti’s, or Barresi. He wanted a real job with responsibility and be able to make serious decisions. good for him, not so much for milan. milan is loosing assets, while this guy is taking lessons and making his rookie mistakes.

Ronaldinho80

I am afraid that our menegement loves casti because he covers a lot of ground and he makes the job easier for calabria

Ronaldinho80

BTW where is douglas costa

Martin Bernhard

according to transfermarkt he was loaned out to gremio in may for a year even though his contract is set to expite by then so it seems like they cut their losses.

Milan10

WE NOW RETURN TO LIKE MILAN10 SAID PROGRAM “Milan10 11 months ago quantity wise milan already have enough of rw, rb, am and even st, although in terms of quality there is still big room for improvement, therefore while baka deal wont be the most exciting or fantastic signing but it will be the most important post ibra deal because milan really need a dm for rotation purpose. john malkovich was right, only 2 mf anchors wont be enough” Q: how do u know milan is run by milan10ian directors?

So while Milan was trying to lower the asking price for 2.5mil for Faivre, Inter enterd the race and reports now say that Inter are the favorites to land him smh. Another outsdanding job from our managmant who cant even close a deal for players who are like the 5or6th alternative of our main target.
PS. As i said above, just pay the extra 2.5mil and get the job done, we wont find a better player than Faivre(13mil) for the same amount. He has the potential to be the next Icone.

Whether or not we miss out on Faivre, this management is the most pathetic, in milan’s history.

Martin Bernhard

If we look at league positions and general improvement in the squad combined with the cash available at their disposal pretty much proves that they exceed both berlusconis last years + the chinese ownership by miles.

dapito

our management want good players only 10 million with loan option… heey wake up and get work…

Spencer

Exactly! Most teams (with exception of Chelsea, who knows how to deal with us) are already tired of our transfer formulas. You can’t expect to get every teams best players with loan formula. Times are hard on most clubs, and they all need funds to reinforce as well.

AC Milan

This shows Chesea really knows how to run a business. Is that why they just won the CL title not the money thrower City and PSG? So you would rather us throw cash at players than winning titles? Again, PSG got second place in farmers league, that was the same position our boys got in a much more competitive league. Need me to say more?

BREAKING NEWS
eintracht frankfurt lead at half time 1-0. who scored for frankfurt u ask? of course a certain milanista did. no no, not andriy “the giant” silva the 4th europe topscorer of last season, he’s gone to leipzig dammit (which means he’s one step away from playing for big epl team). its haugiggs this time. nice going

Nesta1

He will probably be sold next season for 30 million lol

AC Milan

They are at 14th place, which means you know there is a good chance they can relegate.

Milan10

lol for 20m probably. definitely not 30m in this deflated market due to covid. still would be much higher than 12m, let alone 5m milan bought him for

AC Milan

Unfortunately, I really think Hague did a Pato. There’s a lot we wish we could’ve done better. We need to focus what’s in front of us. Good news for us, after 3 rounds, they are at 14th place. Relegation wink wink.

whats do a pato? hauge didnt get injured a lot playing for milan and he sure as hell didnt screw singer’s daughter.
regarding frankfurt, well, thats what they get for selling andriy “the giant” silva the 4th europe topscorer

Ted

Don’t forget the most important thing – he scored while playing on right wing

Milan10

correctamundo mate. pioli tries every player in every position EXCEPT rw even though, like i said, many players like hauge, leao, rebic, conti, florenzi can and do play rw. he’s getting on my nerves

Baresis Dream

Great signing, welcome back Bakayoko. A much need addition if not only to kick Kessie off his high horse.

Still, wish the option would be more like 10 mil than 15 mil.
