Fikayo Tomori has been simply outstanding for Milan since he arrived at the club back in January, on loan from Chelsea. Considering how he has performed, it’s very surprising that the English side didn’t give him a chance.
On the other hand, this has only benefitted Milan and the stance of the Rossoneri is clear with regards to the future. As reported by Calciomercato.com, they have decided to redeem the player at the end of the season.
The potential shown in these first two months with the Rossoneri is of a high level and justifies such an important investment. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara, of course, will attempt to lower the €28m buy-out clause in the deal.
However, if there aren’t any openings, then they are willing to pay the full amount to secure Tomori on a permanent basis. €28m is still a bargain if you consider how well the defender has done in his first few months at the club.
Furthermore, it shouldn’t be forgotten that Milan had budgeted for a centre-back last summer but never bought one. Currently in second place, they are getting closer to Champions League and that would guarantee revenue as well.
