Chelsea star set to join Serie A giants AC Milan

Chelsea star set to join Serie A giants AC Milan

The Belgian defender has been linked with the Red Devils, who are also interested in Jerome Boateng and Eintracht Frankfurt forward Ante Rebic.

Bakayoko has played 43 times for Chelsea since signing from Monaco, scoring three goals and creating three assists in that time.

"Why not?" he exclusively told Starsport when asked if Chelsea could win the title.

"I've always made it very clear that I've always been very happy playing for Chelsea".

Coming on as a substitute in the 59th minute for Callum Hudson-Odoi, Willian was unable to spark any life into Maurizio Sarri's team. "His hard-tackling style is unlikely to suit Maurizio Sarri's style of play, but would be ideal for Diavolo Coach Gennaro Gattuso".

Kovacic could make his debut but should start from the bench having only recently returned from his post-World Cup holidays after Croatia reached the final.

AC Milan target Tiemoue Bakayoko from Chelsea to boost their midfield options.

Sarri will at least be hoping to at least keep hold of the players that he already has at his disposal.

Kovacic joins the club as part of the deal that sees Thibaut Courtois complete his move to Real, subject to the agreement of personal terms and a medical.

Bakayoko failed to adapt to life in the Premier League.

Chelsea travel to Huddersfield for their first game of the season on Saturday.
