Milan 'in talks for Chelsea pair'
Milan are reportedly locked in talks with Chelsea for midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayoko.
According to Calciomercato.com, Milan are trying to drive down Chelsea’s asking price for Fabregas.
The website explains ‘they are not willing to pay’ €10m for a player whose contract expires next summer, while the Spaniard’s demands of €5m a season until 2021 could be a problem.
Furthermore, the Rossoneri would be trying to lower their €35m option to buy Bakayoko at the end of the season.
CM notes the Diavolo are hoping their ‘will’ to keep the Frenchman, his ‘desire to stay’ and their ‘excellent relationship’ with intermediary Federico Pastorello can work in their favour.
