Bakayoko eyes Paris return

13th June 2019, 12:46 by James Mason

Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has revealed he would like to play for Paris Saint-Germain.

France international Bakayoko has endured a tough couple of seasons since leaving Monaco for Premier League outfit Chelsea in the summer of 2017 after he failed to settle at Stamford Bridge.

Having made 29 Premier League appearances during his first campaign with the Blues, the midfielder spent last term on loan AC Milan, where he scored one goal in 31 Serie A matches.

The 24-year-old is set to return to Chelsea after the Rossoneri decided not to make his temporary move permanent and there are doubts over where he will be plying his trade next season.

Although maybe not on the cards right now, Bakayoko, who was born in Paris, has revealed he would love to play for French champions PSG.

"Yes, for sure, one day I would like to play in Paris," he told L'Equipe. "I cannot lie about it. It's big for me and my loved ones. We are real Parisians."
