Chelsea are working to terminate the contract of Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, according to Sky Sports.
The 28-year-old is currently on loan at AC Milan, having been completely out of the first-team picture at Stamford Bridge for a few years now.
Bakayoko joined Chelsea from Monaco in the summer of 2017 but struggled to settle, and has been out on loan four times since then, with a termination now surely making sense for all parties.
Bakoyoko joined Milan in August 2021 on a two-year loan deal – it came with an obligation to buy conditional on a certain number of Serie A appearances. It is believed that number was 15.
He made 14 league appearances last season and has not featured at all this season.
Bakayoko’s Chelsea contract expires in 2024 but the Blues are working to terminate his contract immediately.
