Tiemoue Bakayoko 'wants to terminate Chelsea contract and AC Milan loan to join Newcastle on free transfer' | The Sun

TIEMOUE BAKAYOKO is reportedly looking to terminate his AC Milan loan AND his Chelsea contract.

That’s so the midfielder can make a stunning free transfer to Newcastle.

Football Italia claims Bakayoko is desperate to quit Milan before deadline day after entering the second season of a two-year loan.

Bakayoko played just 14 times last term as Stefano Pioli’s men won the Serie A title.

But Chelsea refused Milan’s attempts to cancel the agreement earlier this summer as it would have left them lumbered with Bakayoko’s £100,000-a-week wages.

However, the anchorman is now desperate for a fresh start.

And he is locked in talks with both Milan and Chelsea in order to have both agreements cancelled.

Should Bakayoko’s demands be met, he would become a free agent on the transfer market.

And that opens the door for a late switch to Newcastle.

Eddie Howe is hoping to add a tenacious midfielder without being forced to dig deep into Toon’s mega-rich pockets.

And Bakayoko would jump at the chance for a second Premier League opportunity with a team carrying European hopes.

However, the Frenchman has other admirers in England’s top flight.

Nottingham Forest have been splashing out left, right and centre in their bid to stay up.

And Steve Cooper would reportedly like Bakayoko added to his squad for his experience.

Should that move go through, it could see Bakayoko paired up with another ex-Serie A star in former Atalanta man Remo Freuler.

There is an option in Italy with Monza, but they are only seen as having an outside chance.
