Milan could lose out on Sandro Tonali, following intense negotiations with Brescia to lower the fee of the operation. President Massimo Cellini has had enough of the Rossoneri and has issued an ultimatum.
Milan paid €10m for the loan and the buy-out clause is set at €15m, with an additional €10m to be included in bonuses. The Rossoneri want to lower this to about €25m, it seems, but the negotiations are now at a crucial moment.
According to Corriere Dello Sport (via MilanLive), Cellino is tired of Milan’s attempts to lower the price and has now issued an ultimatum: they have 24 hours to exercise the buy-out clause, otherwise another club will swoop in.
In fact, Brescia have been approached by a team that are willing to pay the €15m plus €10m in bonuses. Cellino could accept the current Milan offer if one more technical counterpart is included, such as Lorenzo Colombo.
In short, though, the Rossoneri have their backs against the wall as a result of asking for yet another discount, forcing Brescia to put some pressure on them.
