AC Milan have launched their attempt to try and land Sandro Tonali as Inter continue to stall on closing the deal, a report claims.
According to Friday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), Inter have been close to closing Tonali’s purchase for some time but there are signs of a stalled negotiation.
The deal is already set up on the basis of a €3m loan fee with obligation to buy set at €30m, but Milan are trying to take advantage of the Nerazzurri’s stalling to launch their own attempt.
Tonali is not a priority for Inter, who want to sell some midfielders before making new signings in the middle of the field. Massimo Cellino – Brescia’s president – is rather annoyed by the attitude of the Nerazzurri in recent weeks.
Milan have come forward and have already made their offer to Brescia: a paid loan (€10million) with an option to buy set at €25m.
The player, for his part, has never hidden his Milan faith and is very attracted by the possibility of moving to the Rossoneri, where he would have a better chance of getting a central role than at Inter.
