Athletic: Milan believe they secured a €28m bargain from Chelsea after Arsenal’s £50m investment

By Oliver Fisher -

The Milan management believe that the fee they paid for Fikayo Tomori is a bargain compared to some of the other fees paid for centre-backs.

The Athletic have provided an overview of Milan’s summer mercato, noting how it was a bit more varied compared with last year’s during which six players aged 23 and under were signed. This summer it was more about getting the right mix of ages, with an obvious strategy to try and exploit the loan with option to buy market and procure young talent for less than €20-25m.

That being said, Tomori represents the biggest investment that Milan made in the summer as he joined from Chelsea for around £26m (€28m as per virtually all major sources). The report goes on to add that when looking at what Arsenal spent on Ben White – around £50 million – the management are thought to be ‘very happy’ with the deal for a young player with big potential.

    Thats not because Milan is so clevee in investment, Thats because an Arsenal Management is very idiot in investment. Since Gazidis becoming Milan CEO, Arsenal never make a good investment. And off course they would idiotly invest to some idiotic playee also Idiotoc coach like arteta.

      What poses more of threat league or European rivals? You’re not going to strengthen your rival for cheap given their league are wealthy and he’s a native player. All these are taken in consideration when it comes Ben white transfer.
