Chelsea Midfielder Generates Interest From AC Milan: Why He Should Be Given Another Chance

Italian journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio, believes that AC Milan are interested in signing Chelsea‘s midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko. The French midfielder was brought in to replace Nemanja Matic, however, he struggled to get going in his first season at Stamford Bridge.

As a whole team, Chelsea had an underwhelming campaign last season as they finished 5th and missed out on the coveted Champions League spot. They might have won a silverware in the FA Cup but that wasn’t good enough to keep Antonio Conte in the job as the club parted ways with the manager who delivered two trophies in two seasons.

One of the major reasons for Chelsea’s downfall last season was the fact that their new players failed to fire. After selling the likes of Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa, a lot was expected out of Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata. However, both of the new signings underperformed as Chelsea slumped to a fifth-place finish.

New manager, Maurizio Sarri has certainly brought a new sense of hope among fans and it remains to be seen whether he will have Bakayoko in his plans for the upcoming season.

The Blues were uninspiring in their midfield as apart from Ngolo Kante, the likes of Bakayoko and Cesc Fabregas struggled to control the game in the middle of the park. The Blues have already signed Jorginho for big money from Napoli and it is expected that the 26-year-old Italian will be a regular feature for his side in midfield along with Kante.

Bakayoko’s future might depend on what type of system Sarri plays, however, it is quite likely that he will be used as a squad player in the upcoming season. The 23-year-old Frenchman had made 43 appearances last season but was unable to impress more often than not.

He was shoddy in his passes and was unable to provide much defensive cover and was usually uninspiring while going forward. However, a year’s worth of experience in the Premier League will do him a world of good and maybe he would have learnt some valuable lessons to take his game a notch higher next season.

The Pensioners are struggling to keep hold of their main players and losing a midfielder will add another headache for Sarri. The 23-year-old probably deserves another chance in the Premier League to showcase his worth, so the Blues should not part ways with him this summer.
