CorSera: Milan will formalise signing of Chelsea defender Tomori next week

By Isak Möller -

Fikayo Tomori will stay at Milan after what was a very impressive first six months with the club, arriving on loan in January. Fortunately, Paolo Maldini included a buy-out clause and this will be exercised. 

Having said that, Chelsea aren’t keen on favours and will not grant the discount that Milan have sought. The cost of the operation, as reported by Corriere Della Sera (via MilanNews), will thus be the €28m they agreed on in January.

While the Rossoneri did try to get a discount, the signing of Tomori isn’t in question and an agreement has already been reached. The announcement could arrive next week as the deal will be formalised by the parties then.

Considering how well the centre-back did, €28m is a very good price even in this financial struggle, as players with his characteristics are hard to come by. Hopefully, he will continue to perform well for Milan next season.
