AC Milan target THREE Chelsea stars in triple transfer raid but Tiemoue Bakayoko situation could scupper deal

AC MILAN are eyeing a triple transfer raid on Chelsea, reports claim.

The Italian giants signed Fikayo Tomori from the Blues last year and could look to do more business with the Premier League club.

Tiemoue Bakayoko has not played a minute for AC Milan this season

Out of favour stars Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic, plus Ruben Loftus-Cheek, are all admired by the Serie A side, according to Calciomercato.

But it’s claimed Tiemoue Bakayoko, who is on loan at AC Milan, could scupper any potential deals.

The 28-year-old signed for the Italians in 2021 on a two-year loan that included the option to buy for £11million.

While AC Milan are not interested in buying the midfielder, there are clauses in his contract that would trigger an obligation to buy.

Playing 15 games of at least 45 minutes over the two-year period would mean AC Milan have to pay to sign him permanently.

Bakayoko has played 45 minutes or more just seven times for the club, who tried to cancel his loan a year early in the summer.

It’s thought he has not played a single minute of football this season because the Italians do not want to fork out the money to sign him.

And AC Milan risk ruining their relationship with Chelsea by purposely not playing Bakayoko.


They are expected to try again in January to shift Bakayoko so they avoid stumping up the cash to sign him.

But that could damage their hopes of a triple raid for Ziyech, Pulisic and Loftus-Cheek.

There are more ties between the clubs too, with Chelsea keen admirers of AC Milan star Rafael Leao.

The Blues are expected to step up their pursuit of the winger in 2023 with his contract expiring at the end of next season.
