The statement also said: “The player was stopped but as soon as the police verified that he had nothing to do with what happened, they apologised and let him go.” The 27-year-old joined AC Milan on a two-year loan last summer, having also spent the 2018-19 season at the San Siro. He made 18 appearances last season as the Rossoneri won Serie A.

The Frenchman signed for Chelsea from Monaco in 2017 for £40m and made 43 appearances for the club in his first season. He returned to Monaco on loan in August 2019 before switching to Napoli for a season-long loan in October 2020.
