PSG management split over bid for Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko

PSG chief Leonardo is battling coach Thomas Tuchel over his pursuit of Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The France international is available from Chelsea and also wanted by AC Milan.

However, Le 10 Sport says a return to France could be on for Bakayoko if Leonardo gets his way.

The Brazilian is keen to set up a loan arrangement with Chelsea for Bakayoko, which would include a permanent option. The stumbling block isn't Chelsea nor the player, but PSG coach Tuchel.

The German isn't convinced the midfielder fits his system and has told Leonardo as much during transfer talks.
