The arrival of Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea has seemingly been confirmed as AC Milan have in fact already deposited his contract.
Tomori will be Milan’s next signing this transfer window, after securing Soualiho Meite and Mario Mandzukic. The English centre-back is all set for the move and will have his medical today.
Three reliable journalists, namely Fabrizio Romano, Matt Law and Gianluca Di Marzio (via MilanNews) all confirm that it is a loan with an option to buy at €28m (£25m). The loan is for six months and thus the Rossoneri will have to decide in the summer.
As confirmed on the league’s official website, the defender’s contract has already been filed. It is a proactive move that will allow Milan to get the transfer completed first and then the medical, and therefore be able to call him up for tomorrow’s game against Atalanta.
Interestingly, MilanLive report that Tomori has already had part of his medical examinations in London, obviously on behalf of Milan. He will undergo his sports fitness test later.
