Misfit Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is ready to stay at AC Milan for good - if the Blues will let him.

The £40million 24-year-old was signed from Monaco by Chelsea in the summer of 2017 but struggled to make an impact under then-boss Antonio Conte.

Bakayoko was deemed surplus to requirements by Conte’s replacement, Maurizio Sarri and farmed out on loan to Milan in August.

But the Italian giants were ready to give up on him, just two months in, after he failed to impress.
