French midfielder confirmed he wants to leave Chelsea for PSG

Chelsea ace Tiemoue Bakayoko has admitted that he would love to play for Paris Saint-Germain one day.

In an interview with L’Equipe, the midfielder conceded that he would be interested in playing for the Ligue 1 giants.

Tiemoue Bakayoko spent the duration of last campaign on loan at AC Milan following a difficult first season in English football with Chelsea.

The 24-year-old played well for his temporary club under Gennaro Gattuso, despite his relationship with the head coach growing progressively frosty towards the end of his spell in Serie A.

It was Leonardo who recruited Tiemoue Bakayoko for the Serie A giants during his time as the sporting director, and he has recently moved to the French capital.

The France international responded to Leonardo’s move and opened up about his wish to pull on the Paris Saint-Germain shirt at some stage in his career:

“I can’t lie, I’d like to play in Paris one day. I’m happy for Leo, he made me come to Milan and allowed me to regain my level, giving me confidence. I respect him very much, as I respect the Rossoneri.

“I am happy to come to Paris, the club I support in my city. I am convinced that he [Leonardo] will do a great job, and I wish him well.

“One thing is certain: one day I would like to play at PSG. I can’t lie. It would represent something important for my family and me. We are all true Parisians.”
