MN: Milan’s option to buy on Tonali expires as talks continue with Brescia – the situation

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Brescia are working together to find an agreement over the permanent signing of Sandro Tonali, according to a report.

The Rossoneri seem to be locked in a tug-of-war with their Lombardy neighbours over the talented midfielder as they wish to try and amend the original terms of the deal struck last summer, which was a €10m loan with a €15m option to buy plus €10m in bonuses and a 15% future resale percentage.

As MilanNews writes, the deadline for Milan in terms of exercising their option to buy for Tonali has expired according to the conditions decided as part of the agreement with Brescia last August.

However, this does not appear to be a problem at the moment because the Rossoneri and the president of Brescia – Massimo Cellino – are ‘actively working in a climate of maximum collaboration’ to find the best possible solution. The dialogue between the parties will continue in the coming days, while Tonali wants to continue playing for his boyhood club Milan.

      How many 7 and above points did Tonali get in 1 season? Most of them are 5 – 6 points. No worth $25M. Milan is correct to be more prudent.

        Tonali is milanista. We need players like this. Inter gave up on Pirlo, look what happened. Milan recently gave up on Locatelli, look what happened. Don’t make the same mistake with Tonali who is more talented than Locatelli, but even faster, and stronger.. if we lose this move I’m not watching Milan thks year because it’s a signal of what we’re all about and the soul of Milan is dead. It’s less about Tonali specifically but more about what it means as a whole.

          Zoro,
          Milan isn’t dead, Cellino is still working with us, let’s all calm down and stop commenting like we milan is in doom.

          Look, Tonali is a hot prospect, he was wanted by Inter and Juventus and other top clubs, but Maldini and co somehow won the race, we were not expecting to the race, we were not there to teach Maldini and co their job.

          Yes, we cheer for the club, but Maldini’s lineage has been Milan, they live and breath Milan, they are bigger Milan fans than you are. They played this game at the highest levels, they recognize real talent when they see one.

          Tonali is coming to Milan for sure, but it’s clear we can’t just throw money anyhow like before, when we spent 200m there was no significant improvement.

          Bonuses can be negotiated, it’s not a crime, but the actual €25m is intact.
          35m for Tonali is high, 30m maximum is enough.

        He’s 19 lol…. Perhaps we should give him time and learn our lesson from Locatelli, Cristante, etc…?

    man just give them Colombo and end this bs. If we end up buying a young striker next season Colombo’s Milan Career is already over. He’d play much as a sub. We have many more players in the Primavera for that.
