Tiemoue Bakayoko needs to be sold by Chelsea in the summer with Monaco interested
Chelsea’s Premier League campaign didn’t start off well after they were beaten 4-0 by Manchester United.
Frank Lampard’s side had some great chances to score but
This was the Blues’ first competitive fixture under Lampard but they put up a great show, even though they conceded four.
The team selection featured several young players and Lampard has a tough job on his hands given Chelsea’s transfer ban.
The Blues couldn’t sign any new players in the summer, however, they could still offload a player or two.
The Metro claims that Tiemoue Bakayoko could be set for a move away from the club after failing to make it big at the Blues.
The report adds that Monaco are interested in their former player, and a move in the summer should be pushed through by the Blues.
No room for Bakayoko in new look Chelsea
Bakayoko had a tough time during his loan spell at AC Milan but improved in the second half of the previous season.
The Frenchman hasn’t really reached the heights he achieved at Monaco, and return to his form club could be the right move for the 24-year-old.
The Blues don’t have any place for Bakayoko in the current squad thanks to Frank Lampard playing a 4-2-3-1.
N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley can fight for the two places in the midfield.
Barkley was tried out wide in the loss to United, but Christian Pulisic should become a first-team starter soon.
Chelsea could also build their bank by selling Bakayoko now and prepare for a crazy spending spree once the transfer ban is lifted.
The Blues have made one big sale this summer with Eden Hazard joining Real Madrid and that would have hurt them.
However, selling Bakayoko is a no-brainer and they should part ways with the Frenchman permanently in this transfer window.
