AC Milan have agreed a deal with Chelsea for defender Fikayo Tomori and may have achieved favourable terms, a journalist has claimed.
Tomori joined Milan on an initial six-month loan spell with an option to buy included as part of the deal, and given his sensational performances since arriving it has led to strong speculation he will be bought outright.
Fabrizio Romano reported on Twitter that Tomori to Milan is indeed a done deal. Chelsea will receive €28m from Milan for the 23-year-old and the agreement will be completed soon as expected. Tomori will leave the Blues and sign a five-year contract with the Rossoneri.
Now, Nizaar Kinsella of Goal has confirmed Tomori is on the verge of joining Milan. There has been negotiations between clubs to allow Milan to spread or reduce payments from the £26m option to buy (€28.5m), and he adds that Chelsea will get either very close to full fee or spread the payments.
