According to Talksport, Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko’s move to A.C. Milan has taken a big step forward after Chelsea agreed to subsidize Bakayoko’s wages.

Bakayoko’s wages currently sit at an estimated £110,000 and with A.C Milan being under extra financial scrutiny after failing to comply with financial fair play last season they are keen to keep their wage budget as low as possible and it seems the two teams have reached an agreement over wage sharing.

Milan will also retain the right to sign Bakayoko on a permanent basis for a fee believed to be around £30million in another attempt to navigate the dangerous waters of financial fair play.

This clause puts Chelsea at risk of a £10million loss as Bakayoko joined the Blues for £40million just 12 months ago, showing that Sarri clearly does not believe that the French international can add anything to his Chelsea side.

Bakayoko would become Milan’s eighth senior signing this season joining the likes of Mattia Caldara and Gonzalo Higuain who both joined from Serie A champions Juventus last week as well as the Croatian trio of Ivan Strinić, Nikola Kalinić and Alen Halilović among others.

A.C Milan kick off their league campaign next Sunday as they take on Genoa at the San Siro.
