CM: Superstitions and a big discount – Milan enjoying their Tonali gamble

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are enjoying the improvement that midfielder Sandro Tonali has made since his arrival on a permanent deal from Brescia over the summer. writes that Tonali’s first season at Milan was not quite up to the levels that the management were expecting, as they paid €10m for the loan and had agreed to a total deal worth €35m with €25m of that being fixed and also bonuses included.

In the end, the agreement was amended so Milan will pay €6.9m and not €7m, in order not to reach a total value of €17m, a number that Brescia president Massimo Cellino is superstitious about, with a further €3m in bonuses.

With the start of the new season, Tonali has broken out. While Kessié and Bennacer have struggled at various points, he took Milan’s midfield as his own with his physique and technique. It is worth remembering that Inter also wanted him in the same summer Milan did, and now it is looking like a good decision to have sunk the deal.
