Napoli to release Bakayoko

Napoli have decided not to purchase Tiemoue Bakayoko from Chelsea, so a return to France is possible for PSG or Lyon.

The 26-year-old is only under contract with Chelsea until June 2022, having been purchased from Monaco for €40m back in 2017.

He barely played with the Blues jersey, going out on a series of less than stellar loan spells at Milan, Monaco and Napoli.
