GdS: Milan convinced by Tonali as agreement is very close – UEFA squad list a factor

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan appear to have unlocked the deadlock in the Sandro Tonali operation and are close to welcoming him permanently, a report claims.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), the talks are on the final stretch after days of dialogue, as in the past few hours there has been an acceleration. It is anticipated that n the next few days the parties could find the right meeting point for the midfielder’s definitive passage to the Rossoneri.

Milan never imagined going into 2021-22 without Tonali because they believe that letting him leave could prove to be a risky choice. Not only that, but UEFA rules state that 8 of the 25 players in the squad list must have been trained in the country of the team (4) or in the club’s academy (at least 4).

An agreement with Brescia is ‘very close’ and it is expected that Giacomo Olzer will not be the only young talent to go the other way as Lorenzo Colombo is also targeted by Brescia. Cellino is pushing for a two-year loan for the teenager striker.
