AC Milan want to keep Fikayo Tomori beyond the end of the season but it is not as straightforward as exercising the clause immediately, a report claims.
According to the latest editorial on MilanNews, the Rossoneri have no doubts about their desire to keep Tomori – who is currently on loan with an option to buy from Chelsea – but 2 out of 3 parties (Milan, the player and Chelsea) must want the same thing and negotiating with the Blues is not easy.
Chelsea want the money but Tuchel probably wants the player back, while the Rossoneri have to deal with possible non-sales like Diego Laxalt and Andrea Conti above all, and other urgent market priorities, such as a new winger, a striker and a full-back.
Milan want to redeem Tomori and if the Englishman wants to stay, 2 out of 3 members would be a ‘majority’. After that, it will be necessary to find an agreement, otherwise it will be yet another issue of indecision that dominates the headlines.
