Chelsea fans won’t like ‘s comments about the difference between their club and AC Milan.
The Stamford Bridge club only signed the French midfielder from AS Monaco in a £40million deal in 2017, but he’s already out on loan at Milan getting the games he couldn’t at Chelsea.
For Bakayoko, that’s been a positive move as he’s made 26 appearances for them so far this season and has been in particularly good form recently.
Milan are up to fourth in Serie A under Gennaro Gattuso and will still feel a Champions League qualification place is well within their grasp.
But regardless of if they get that, it seems Bakayoko is keen to stick around Milan beyond the end of his loan deal ending this summer.
According to the former Monaco man, AC are on a ‘different planet’ to Chelsea as a club.
Per sempremilan.com, Bakayoko said: “Things are going well for the club and I right now.
“There wasn’t a turning point. I just wanted to show that I was good enough for a big club. Milan are on a different planet.
“I was greeted by Maldini and Leonardo on my first day and and you immediately realise who you’re dealing with.
“Then you have the atmosphere at San Siro, which is extraordinary. Milan are a legendary club. Who wouldn’t like to stay at a club like Milan for a long time?
“Having said that, I’m still under contract with Chelsea for the next three years. I don’t have all the cards.
“Gattuso’s someone who gives everything to his players and transmits many good things.
“He’s like how he was as a player: direct, frank, straight to the point. He doesn’t cheat and doesn’t mince his words.
“Even though he can be tough, he always tells you things for your own good. Life is good in Milan. I’ve already changed my entire wardrobe.
“The weather is similar to the south of France and we eat well here. It’s an ideal place to live.”
Chelsea may not be too keen to bring Bakayoko back anyway, but his comments suggest that he’d much rather be in Italy rather than England going forward.
In his only season at Chelsea, Bakayoko made 43 appearances as Antonio Conte’s men finished fifth in the Premier League, but won the FA Cup.
