AC Milan are hoping to secure some more favourable terms for the deal that will see Sandro Tonali join permanently, a report claims.
According to Calciomercato.com, Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara are convinced that Tonali is a player for the future and no definitive judgment can be made after a season of ups and downs that have seen the young player encounter some difficulties in his first season at a top club.
However, the directors are also trying to schedule a new meeting with Brescia to try to change the conditions regarding the option to buy. Last summer, Milan gave Brescia guarantees that they would buy Tonali permanently which is why the Rondinelle allowed him to leave on loan with an option to buy, especially since the Rossoneri paid a €10m loan fee.
A price of 15 million was agreed to make it permanent with an extra €8m in bonuses, so a total operation of €33m. Maldini’s objective is to get a discount, perhaps by deferring the expense, and a summit is scheduled for the next few days with the president of Brescia, Massimo Cellino. Otherwise, Milan will still complete the operation for Tonali.
