Talks held – Club seriously considering smart transfer raid on Chelsea

Monaco has reportedly held initial talks with Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko over a potential loan transfer back to the Ligue one club.

The France international shone at Monaco before earning a big move to Chelsea in the summer of 2017, however, he’s since flopped at Stamford Bridge.

Bakayoko ended up losing his place after one season with the Blues, heading out on loan to AC Milan last term, where he appeared to show some of his best forms again.

However, that doesn’t appear to have earned him a place in Frank Lampard’s plans for the 2019/20 season, as L’Equipe, with translation from Sport Witness, state that he may now return to Monaco.

The report states his former club are seriously considering this after initial discussions, though they can’t afford to sign him on a permanent transfer deal for the moment.

Chelsea fans will surely just be hoping the 24-year-old can be offloaded shortly to free up some cash off their wage bill.

If Bakayoko joins Monaco, he’ll be reunited with ex-Blues team-mate Cesc Fabregas, who joined the club in January.

Given the player has shone in France’s top flight before and should still recognize most of the players and the manager, this could end up being a smart piece of business by Monaco if they pull it off.
