Fabinho claims Chelsea made a huge error in the summer transfer window

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho believes Chelsea could live to regret dispensing with Tiemoue Bakayoko without giving his former Monaco teammate a fair chance.

The France international was signed a year ago by Antonio Conte in a £35million deal but he failed to make an impression at Stamford Bridge, although he did start the final four games of last season, including the FA Cup final win over Manchester United.

Maurizio Sarri, however, instantly deemed the 24-year-old surplus to requirements and sanctioned his loan move to AC Milan with the Italian giants having the option to make the deal permanent at the end of the current season.

‘I don’t think he struggled that much,’ Fabinho told Yahoo. ‘I watched a few games and he seemed always good to me.

‘Obviously, in your first season in a new club it’s always difficult and I wasn’t expecting him to leave, but AC Milan are getting a great player.

‘I’m sure he’ll be able to prove how good he is and show what he did at Monaco.

‘I’m sure if he comes back to England he will be stronger and will show everyone what he’s capable of.’
