AC Milan are looking to make some moves for the midfield in the summer and that could have a knock-on regarding Tiemoue Bakayoko, a report claims.
According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Milan will build the midfield around Sandro Tonali and Ismael Bennacer who should extend their contracts before the 2022-23 season begins, while they are also preparing for the exit of Franck Kessie.
The Ivorian’s decision not to sign a new contract means that the impetus is now on Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara to complete the department by signing a big player, and the current idea is to focus on Renato Sanches of Lille, and contacts with both Lille and his agent Jorge Mendes are continuing.
The former Bayern Munich and Benfica man is expected to take over from Kessie, and that could impact the situation of Tiémoué Bakayoko. He arrived on a two-year loan with option to buy from Chelsea over the summer but he could ask to leave if he realises that he is below Tonali, Bennacer and the new man in the pecking order.
