AC Milan’s summer spending has continued as they officially confirmed the signing of Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea on a four-year deal.
MilanNews writes how the news had already been in the air for days, but now the official announcement has arrived as Milan have used their option to buy Tomori from Chelsea meaning they are now the outright owners of the Englishman.
The Rossoneri management spent about €28m to secure his stay which, when added to the €13m paid to Lille for Mike Maignan, makes Milan the Italian club that has so far spent the most on the market.
The Milan transfer campaign, of course, does not end here. The Diavolo’s strategy now seems to be to focus on other players on loan with an option to buy, so as to have the opportunity to carefully evaluate them before eventually buying them outright. It is a strategy that worked well in Tomori’s case, so it could work well again.
