GdS: Milan secure €10m discount on Tonali deal but want player to reduce his salary

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking to obtain a further discount in the Sandro Tonali operation having reached an agreement with Brescia, according to a report.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), the Rossoneri management have also budgeted for a saving on the salary of Tonali, who last summer signed a contract worth €1.6m net per season.

Brescia has given a discount of €10m but now Milan expects the midfielder to be willing to do the same, in proportion. The leaders of the Rossoneri have not yet met his agent, but it is likely that the issue will be addressed as early as next week.

Technically, Tonali is still contracted to Brescia for another two years with a salary of just €130k per year since the option to buy expired, meaning however much Maldini may ask him for a sacrifice, it would still be a big pay rise from his Brescia salary.

Between Milan and Brescia the white smoke is very close after yet another positive contact with Cellino. The Rossoneri will pay another €7m (after the €10m already spent last September. To reach the total €25m there is €3m for Olzer’s valuation and the other €5m would be bonuses.

    Perfect, and while we’re at it, ask him if he can’t play for free? Also, give away Hauge, Pobega and Leao and buy some 34-year olds to secure the future of the team.

    I just hope this Milan won’t later become like arsenal because we have a CEO called gazidis who is the best negotiator of all times. Pls life is all about give and take. Hope we won’t later let all our best players leave because AC Milan has become a very stingy club. I still remember that when gazidis was the CEO of arsenal they later became a club that developed players for winning teams in England. And remember most of them left on free transfer. Pls we ain’t arsenal. We a team that have high affinity for win so Elliot management shouldn’t be like koerenke who is now paying what he should have paid ten years ago on useless players. So maldini should know we are winners not arsenal who are losers

    I’m beginning to understand #99 stance. Will he be at fault if he becomes so important for the club and demands outrageous salary?
