CM: Chelsea to lose either way as Milan draw up plan to keep €28m loanee

By Isak Möller -

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.

    Just going to say it here as it seem these writers are bereft of ideas as to the why instead of what is. The likely scenario I can see happening is for Chelsea to lower the asking price is if Milan includes a percentage of a future sale. this would help Milan’s books/budget and can provide Chelsea with a boost in funds if a heft transfer fee comes in for him in the future if Milan has to sell. It’s not like Chelsea is going to automatically lower the price on its own. The other scenario is an exchange of players, perhaps some youth.

      They didn’t budge on Bakayoko’s price, I don’t see them budging on Tomori (who would be seen as bigger loss than Bakayoko). 28M is a reasonable price for all party involved. It is just whether Milan wants to pay up or not. Everyday there’s always a new article about this and it’s getting old. The ball is in Milan’s court at the moment. Either pay up or shut up.

    Tomori has already proven to be better than the asking price of chelsea they should pay up and let him have confidence to do more imagine if Milan was now going to negotiate for him chelsea would’ve quote $40m+ or their new Coach will shut the door on him.they should do their very best to sign him because he’s good.

    It’s better to lose Romanogli than to lose Tomori because dealings with Mino Raiola is easy and it will hurt our club
