Tiemoue Bakayoko has returned to Milan from Chelsea, joining the Serie A club on a two-year loan deal.
Midfielder Bakayoko previously played for the Rossoneri back in the 2018-19 season, making 42 appearances in all competitions and scoring a solitary goal while working with head coach Gennaro Gattuso.
The 27-year-old also played in Italy last term too, spending the campaign with Gattuso again, this time at Napoli.
However, the Frenchman is now heading back to Milan, where he will team up with former Chelsea duo Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud at San Siro.
He will remain with Milan, who revealed there is an obligation for a permanent transfer if certain criteria are met, until 2023.

Bakayoko has not played for Chelsea since starting in the FA Cup final victory over Manchester United in May 2018, Eden Hazard scoring the only goal in what turned out to be Antonio Conte’s final game in charge of the Blues.
He played in 43 games during that campaign, scoring three goals and providing the same number of assists.
Chelsea had signed Bakayoko after his impressive performances in the 2016-17 season for Monaco, who pipped Paris Saint-Germain to win Ligue 1 and also reached the Champions League semi-finals.
