According to a report from Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness), Chelsea midfielder Tiémoué Bakayoko’s name has not been forgotten at AC Milan — and not because his season on loan there in 2018-19 ended on a rather sour note.

That’s certainly good news for Bakayoko, whose €40m buy-option has not been picked up by AS Monaco. And it is unlikely that they will activate it after the premature cancellation of the 2019-20 Ligue 1 season.
