TIEMOUE BAKAYOKO REVEALS AMBITION TO PLAY IN PARIS

The Blues midfielder has expressed a desire to play in his home city in the near future, having spent the 2018-19 campaign on loan at AC Milan.

Tiemoue Bakayoko has revealed his burning ambition to play for Paris Saint-Germain, with a return to Stamford Bridge on the cards this summer.

The France international signed for the Blues from Monaco in 2017 but failed to live up to expectations during his first season in the Premier League.

The 24-year-old was shipped out on a season-long loan to AC Milan last summer and he racked up 31 Serie A appearances in total despite enduring a fractious relationship with now-departed head coach Gennaro Gattuso.

Bakayoko is due back at Chelsea for pre-season duty, but he has been linked with a permanent move elsewhere while Milan still have the option to buy the midfielder for €35 million (£31m/$40m).

Bakayoko has three years remaining on his existing deal at the Bridge and his agent has insisted he will remain with the Blues ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
However, he has his sights set on a transfer to PSG in the coming years, having been born in the French capital.

“Yes, for sure, one day I would like to play in Paris,” he told L’Equipe.

“I cannot lie about it. It’s big for me and my loved ones. We are real Parisians.”

Bakayoko went on to confirm he will go back to Chelsea for the time being, adding: “My future? Yes, I will go back to Chelsea. I still have a three-year contract.

“I have no choice. I don’t know what will happen after that but I have to go back to Chelsea. It is the only thing I know.”
