AC Milan coach maintains suspense over Ziyech’s arrival

AC Milan coach maintains suspense over Ziyech’s arrival


Pushed out by Chelsea, Hakim Ziyech is close to bouncing back to AC Milan. As negotiations continue between the Italian club and the English club, the Rossoneri manager answered a question regarding the arrival of the Blues midfielder.

Between Chelsea and Hakim Ziyech, the story is almost at an end. The Atlas Lion, who has failed to win in the Premier League since arriving from Ajax Amsterdam in the summer of 2020, has been put on the transfer list, much to the delight of AC Milan who have been following the player for several years.

According to the British press, the Serie A champions are currently discussing a loan deal with Chelsea worth €5m, with an option to buy set at €20m, as they attempt to bring the Moroccan to San Siro. Moreover, relations between the two clubs are in good shape, Milan having recovered Olivier Giroud and Fikayo Tomori last season.

Asked about it at a press conference, AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli maintained the suspense, vaguely answering the question. “I don’t know… it’s up to the board of directors to decide,” said the Milanese coach with a smile on his face.

Chelsea signed Ziyech in 2020 for a fee of around €40m. He struggled at the start of his debut campaign at Stamford Bridge after picking up an injury in pre-season.

However, he quickly settled in, playing 39 games and scoring six goals. Last season he played 44 times under Thomas Tuchel, scoring eight times, as Chelsea finished third in the Premier League.

For their part, Milan are looking to build on last season, when they won their 19th Serie A title and their first since the 2010-11 campaign, and have now decided to bring in Ziyech.

It remains to be seen whether Ziyech will regain his club form and whether his move to Italy could change his mind about his decision to retire from international football prematurely.
