Bakayoko arrived on loan and AC Milan had an option to make his move permanent but the Rossoneri declined to pay €35 million euros and the French midfielder returned to Chelsea.

However, he may not stay in England for long because Leonardo wants to bring Bakayoko at PSG. According to France Football, PSG are in search of a defensive midfielder and the former Milan star is favorite for the role.
