Agent throws Bakayoko’s Napoli future into doubt

Tiémoué Bakayoko wants to play Champions League football next season and his stay at Napoli is in doubt, his agent claimed.

Bakayoko joined Napoli on loan from Chelsea this past October, but the Serie A giants do not have an option to make the player’s move permanent.

“It’s a good moment, Tiémoué scored in his last game with Napoli and the team are back in the top four,” the player’s brother and agent, Abdoulaye, told CalcioNapoli24.

“He is happy to play at Napoli, one of the best Serie A clubs. I respect Gennaro Gattuso, it was important to join him again after their experience at Milan. It’s been a nice season, Tiémoué feels at ease in the city and the team.

“However, I don’t know if he will remain at Napoli. If they qualify for the Champions League things could change.

“He wants to play in the Champions League, but it also depends on Napoli and Chelsea. Napoli don’t have an option to sign him permanently, Tiémoué is happy, but he is aware his destiny depends on what Chelsea and Napoli want to do.”
