Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri to send Bakayoko on loan this summer

Initially on-loan, but with a view to a permanent deal next summer.

The player's agent has been in Milan for talks over a loan move, with the European window yet to shut.

Bakayoko, however, didn't even make the bench for the Blues' Community Shield defeat to Manchester City last week as Fabregas, Barkley and Jorginho started in midfield.
