Bakayoko to fill in for Loftus-Cheek
The bad omens regarding the Loftus-Cheek injury have come true. The English midfielder was injured in the friendly in the USA and the doctors detected a rupture of the Achilles tendon.
Loftus-Cheek could be away from action for nearly a year, so Chelsea are already starting to manage different options to strengthen that position for the next season. In particular counting on nort being able to sign anyone.
Therefore, Bakayoko's return seems necessary for a squad that could be short of reinforcements. At 24, Bakayoko is having a great season in Milan, who could purchase Bakayoko for 38 million euros.
However, it's a figure that is too high for Milan. In addition, the relationship between Gattuso and the player have not got on well, so everything points to return to London, where by necessity they await him with open arms.
