As the world braces itself for the January window, one name that could be making headlines is Chelsea’s Benoît Badiashile.

The French center-back, who arrived at Stamford Bridge from AS Monaco at the beginning of the year, has had a mixed tenure so far, marked by a notable ‘disastrous’ performance in Chelsea’s recent 4-1 defeat to Newcastle United.

Badiashile’s journey with Chelsea took a detour when a groin injury sidelined him in May. It interrupted what was a promising start with 11 appearances in the second half of the last season.

The center-back has recently returned to action, earning his first start of the season in the clash against Newcastle United.

Badiashile to AC Milan?

However, the rocky start to his Chelsea career has prompted speculation about his future at the club. According to reports, Chelsea may consider sending Badiashile away in the transfer window, opening the door for AC Milan.

AC Milan, with a history of successful dealings with Chelsea, reportedly show interest in securing a loan deal for Badiashile

Known for acquiring players from Chelsea, could replicate the formula that saw Tomori thrive at the San Siro.

What adds an intriguing layer to the deal is the suggestion of including a purchase option in the loan arrangement.

This strategic move is reportedly aimed at ensuring that Milan doesn’t merely aid Chelsea in Badiashile’s development, only to see him return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the loan spell.

Offloading Badiashile proves challenging for Chelsea, facing potential financial loss due to the defender’s contract extending until 2030.

The club’s reported preference for a dry loan aligns with Milan’s singular focus on the French center-back at this juncture.

As the transfer window approaches, Benoît Badiashile’s potential move to AC Milan promises to be one of the intriguing storylines.

Chelsea’s decision to part ways with the talented defender and Milan’s pursuit to replicate their successful dealings with the London club will undoubtedly keep football enthusiasts on the edge of their seats.
