AC Milan have virtually closed the signing of Sandro Tonali from Brescia, a report claims, with a plan about to be put into place.
According to Calciomercato.com, Paolo Maldini and Massimo Cellino reached an agreement on the basis of a paid loan with option to buy. It will be a loan fee of €10million, with the option set at €15million and the possibility of a further €10million bonuses, plus a 10% future resale clause.
Personal terms have even been agreed with the player, who will sign a five-year contract worth €2m net per season (therefore €4m gross and a €20m commitment in total). That means the total investment by Milan could reach €55m.
Firstly though, Tonali must extend his current deal with Brescia. This is a simple detail intended to avoid the possibility of Milan not buying the player outright and him returning to the Lombardy club with only one year of contract left and a low market value.
