CorSera: Cellino changed stance on Milan’s offer for Tonali due to two reasons

By Oliver Fisher -

Only the signatures on the contracts are missing, but Sandro Tonali can really be considered a new Milan player.

According to Monday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), Milan and Brescia have found an agreement on the basis of a paid loan with an option to buy.

Not only that, but personal terms have been agreed with the player too. Milan have agreed a five-year deal with the 20-year-old worth €2.2million net, therefore €11m in total.

The paper adds how initially Brescia president Massimo Cellino was not very convinced by the idea of an option to buy rather than an obligation, but in the end he has decided to accept.

He changed his mind for two reasons: the first being that the loan is very expensive (€10million compared to the €3m offered by Inter) and also because Milan used the extra incentive of putting a 10% resale clause into the deal.
