Chelsea's £40million flop Tiemoue Bakayoko could face a humiliating return to England after AC Milan threatened to cut short his loan deal.

The 24-year-old midfielder moved to the San Siro on a season-long loan after a disappointing start to life at Stamford Bridge.

But his stay in Serie A could end as early as January, with Corriere dello Sportclaiming he has six games to save his Milan career.
