Tiemoue Bakayoko has returned to Milan from Chelsea, where he joined the Serie A club on a two-year loan deal.
Midfielder Bakayoko previously played for Rossoneri back in the 2018-19 season, making 42 appearances in all competitions and scoring a lone goal while working with head coach Gennaro Gattuso.
The 27-year-old also played last year in Italy and spent the campaign with Gattuso again, this time in Naples.
However, the Frenchman is now on his way back to Milan, where he will join the former Chelsea duo Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud in the San Siro.
He remains with Milan, who revealed that there is an obligation for a permanent transfer if certain criteria are met until 2023.

Bakayoko has not played for Chelsea since the start of the FA Cup final victory over Manchester United in May 2018, where Eden Hazard scored the only goal in what turned out to be Antonio Conte’s last match in charge of the Blues.
He played in 43 games during that campaign, scoring three goals and giving the same number of assists.
Chelsea had signed Bakayoko after his impressive performance in the 2016-17 season for Monaco, who piped Paris Saint-Germain to win Ligue 1 and also reached the Champions League semi-finals.
