AC Milan wanted to cancel Tiemoué Bakayoko‘s loan next January due to his poor performances in this start of the season but recently the Italian club changed his mind.

The 24-year-old improved in his playing but, furthermore, the Rossoneri suffered a lot long-term injuries in the past weeks and cannot reduce their squad anymore.

Giacomo Bonaventura underwent a knee-surgery yesterday and will come back next season, Argentine international Lucas Biglia will be out for 4 months and Calahnoglu is a doubt for the next games for an old foot issue.

All the starting defenders are out as well ( Caldara for 3 months, Musacchio for 2, Romagnoli for 1 and Calabria is a doubt for the next games).

Because of this difficult situation and Bakayoko’s improvements in Serie A the Italian side decided to keep him for the rest of the season.

Ghana left-back Baba Rahman is still confident he can have a future at Chelsea.

The defender has been on loan for two years at Schalke 04 and he recently returned to action after recovering from a long-term knee injury he suffered last season

“You can never say where football will guide you to. Maybe I stay for the next 10 years at Schalke but I can also imagine playing for Chelsea again,” he is quoted by the Evening Standard.

“As one of the best clubs in the world, Chelsea gives many players the chance to make their dreams come true and become better footballers.

“The club gives talented players a chance to prove themselves. At Schalke, I am now regularly in front of 60,000 spectators on the pitch, which makes me incredibly good in my development.”

Chelsea midfielder Kenedy, on loan at Newcastle United, has avoided retrospective action for his off-the-ball challenge on Cardiff City’s Victor Camarasa last Saturday.

The Brazilian winger appeared to kick out at the Spaniard but referee Craig Pawson didn’t show any card.

However, the referee awarded Cardiff a free kick, and as such the incident will not be referred to a disciplinary panel as it was dealt with at the time.

Kenedy had been recently facing a three-match ban for violent conduct, but the Brazilian will not be handed any further punishment.

The 22-year-old endured a poor individual display at the Cardiff City Stadium, failing to complete a single pass in the first half and then missing a penalty in the final minute of stoppage time.

Newcastle ended the game with 10 men, though, since Isaac Hayden was sent off for a challenge from behind on Josh Murphy in the middle of the second half.

Speaking after the clash he claimed he’s sure his future will be at Stamford Bridge:

“Yes, it’s been amazing, obviously to make two senior caps is a big achievement for me,” the current Swans striker said after the Wembley game.

“It proves that I am doing the right things. I just have to keep focused and working as hard as I can.”

Chelsea’s academy staff know all about his ability but also mention his love for the game and his unbounded enthusiasm for it :

“Yeah, for me I live football,” Abraham agreed.

“Football has always been in my heart. And every time I step out on that pitch I always want to prove myself and do the best that I can.”

Asked if he can make it to Russia 2018 World Cup:

“Definitely,” was his instant response.

“I’m a person who believes massively in myself, and like the (England) coaches just said to us – we have to go back to our clubs and give 100 per cent and hopefully see what happens.”

Abraham, while focused on his loan club sees his England future at Stamford Bridge:

“Yeah, definitely,” he replied.

“Hopefully that will be the dream really. Like I said, I have to do everything right this season and we will see what happens next season.

With the future of Michy Batshuayi more than uncertain at Stamford Bridge after some poor performances, it seems Chelsea are thinking about recalling Tammy Abraham from his loan at Swansea in the second part of the season.

The young striker has already scored five goals in ten games and Swansea’s manager Paul Clement insists he will stay in Wales all season long.

“There is a stipulation in place that if he does not meet a certain amount of games, a proportion of games by the halfway stage, he can be recalled,”  – Clement explained – That is a normal thing to have on a season-long loan in place to protect the player, to make sure he’s getting the right amount of game time. But if we were bringing in a player of his ability then I felt he was coming here to play. As we stand there is no reason to think he would not meet that criteria. He’s well on course for that and he’ll be here for the year. The only way they can recall him is if he is sat on the bench for the remaining games. But the way he’s playing I can’t see that happening.’
