CM: How Milan will finance €28m signing of Chelsea loanee – trio to be sacrificed

By Isak Möller -

Milan are totally convinced by Fikayo Tomori, who arrived on a six-month loan from Chelsea in January. Despite having very little time to adapt, the centre-back quickly earned a permanent spot in the starting XI. 

As reported by Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri intend on exercising the €28m clause at the end of the season and thus secure Tomori on a permanent basis. While they have some money left over from the summer, they could also sell a trio.

The players in question are Mattia Caldara, Andrea Conti and Diego Laxalt, who are on loan at Atalanta, Parma and Celtic respectively. While it’s unsure if they will stay at those clubs, Milan are hoping to cash in €25m from them.

This is more than enough to sign Tomori, also because the Rossoneri had budgeted for a centre-back signing in the summer but ended up waiting until January. The Englishman looks set to stay at the club, in other words.

    im confident that milan arer well aware that we wont get 25 mil for those 3 players. Conti has a contract expiring 2022 and a valuation on transfermarkt at 7 mil, Diego Laxalt has a contract expiring 2022 and a valuation on transfermarkt at 7 mil, Mattia Caldarara a contract expiring 2023 and a valuation at 6 mil on transfermarkt and a long row of injuries behind him. We should praise ourselfs lucky if we even get 20 mil at that point.

      12-13 thought

        Ade yeah something like that or maybe max 15-16 mil. I’ll surely be impressed if we could get 20 mil for those players. Milan might even deem some of those players to cheap in the current market and endup keeping one or two of them untill their contracts expire while sending some of our younger players out on a season long loans to get the needed minutes. Hopefully we will sell them though but id expect us to fecth in the vicnity of 2-3 mil for laxalt as they tried to sell him for 5 last summer. Caldara is a gamble by now and even though atalanta has a 15 mil buyout clause i doesnt really expect him to be sold for more than 5-6 mil. Conti propably wont costn more than 5-7 mil.

      u should add their annual wages too. isnt conti and caldara have quite high wages

      1. Martin Bernhard says:

        Great point Muhammad, both conti and caldara at this point propably only will intrigue mid table teams and conti has a salary of 2 mil a year and caldara apparently earns a staggering 3.6 mil a year so yeah we will have an even harder time offloading them or atleast we will endup paying some of their salaries for a year and in caldaras case it would propably mean paying half his wages until 2023.. Laxalt earns 2.9 mil a year before taxes so he sint really a cheap option either for midtable teams but hopefully he will join celtic on a permanent basis.
