Fikayo Tomori has been in great form since his arrival at Milan in January, joining on a six-month loan. The Rossoneri managed to include a €28m buy-out clause and looking back, it was a good move.
Paolo Maldini was looking for a centre-back already ahead of the season but decided to wait until January. In hindsight, it was probably for the best as Milan now have a very good player in their squad.
As highlighted by Corriere Della Sera (via MilanNews), the buy-out clause is valued at €28m and based on the performances thus far, it will be money well spent. In fact, Tomori has been one of the best Milan players this year.
Alessio Romagnoli was the undisputed starter at the beginning of the season, as the captain of the team, but he couldn’t even defend his spot when up against the Chelsea loanee. That says a lot about the last few months.
