Tiemoue Bakayoko’s season is over after France’s prime minister Edouard Philippe announced a ban on all sporting events until the beginning of September but there remains uncertainty about the Chelsea midfielder’s long-term future once his loan at Monaco draws to a close.

The 25-year-old’s loan agreement ties him to the principality club until June 30 and there is an option to buy for a fee of about £30million.

However, it is not clear if Moanco will be activating it owing to financial constraints as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Bakayoko remains under contract at Chelsea until 2022 but is not part of Frank Lampard’s first-team plans.

If Monaco do not pick up their option to buy, the Blues will attempt to sell a player who joined in 2017 for £40million once they receive an offer that meets their expectations in the next window.

He is also being watched by Paris Saint-Germain and according to reports in the French media their sporting director Leonardo has held preliminary discussions.

Bakayoko, who spent last season on loan at AC Milan, had featured prominently for Monaco this season. Having failed to win any of their first six games, they had climbed out of danger and into mid-table.

“The 2019-20 season of professional sports, including football, will not be able to resume,” Phillippe said in a serious blow to the French clubs, who had collectively agreed that they wanted to complete the campaign.

“It will be possible, on sunny days, to practice an individual sporting activity outdoors, obviously respecting the rules of social distancing.

“It will not be possible, neither to practice sport in covered places, nor team or contact sports.”
