Arrived from Chelsea with great expectations this summer, one of the great disappointments at home Milan in this first part of the season was certainly the French midfielder, Tiemoué Bakayoko. Leonardo took him to Milan in the last days of the market and the Frenchman had to play the role of twelfth man in the team of Gennaro Gattuso. The former Monaco, in fact, was considered as a real alternative to Kessié and Biglia, to be able to give the latter two the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the many commitments between the league and the Europa League.
Despite this, Bakayoko has disappointed every time he has been called into question. Starting from his debut with Milan shirt, in the match against Napoli, the French midfielder ended up in the crosshairs of critics and technical Gattuso. Yesterday, then, the umpteenth colorless test in the Europa League against Betis Sevilla. In fact, sent to the field from the first minute, in order to catch Kessié, the player was replaced after only 45 minutes by Mr. Gattuso, who preferred to change form and deploy Suso in his place. Continuing thus it is difficult to think that Milan can ask Chelsea to treat the purchase outright. The future, therefore, is in the hands of Bakayoko: either it will be redeemed on the field or will return to Chelsea, where it does not fall into the plans of Maurizio Sarri
