End of silly season silliness

Tiémoué Bakayoko is suddenly very popular in the rumor mill once again — and possibly not just because the likes of Fabrizio Romano must keep the wheels turning and churning — with renewed talk of AC Milan negotiations coming hot on the heels of supposed interest from Stade Rennais. (Meanwhile, Alfredo Pedullà notes that Napoli have definitely dropped out of the race, again, due to financial considerations, and Juventus will obviously also not follow up on their obviously nonsense interest either after agreeing a deal for Manuel Locatelli of Sassuolo.)

But back to Timmy.

He has just one year left on his contract, which, like for many of our fringe players and Loan Army driftwood, is complicating the situation. No one wants to play a transfer fee, but also no one wants more loans again, least of all, Chelsea.

Whether AC Milan are now offering an actual transfer fee in these supposed advanced “negotiations” remains to be seen. Probably shouldn’t hold your breath though...
