AC Milan and Brescia are still working together to try and find a solution that will see Sandro Tonali join permanently, a report claims.
The option to buy has now officially expired, so the deal for Tonali will have to be re-discussed between Milan and Brescia. Both clubs are aiming to reach an agreement, especially given the Rossoneri have already paid €10m for his loan and are discussing with the Rondinelle to find a solution which nets them a discount on the €25m extra owed (including bonuses) plus 10% future resale.
According to the latest from Alfredo Pedulla (via MN24), the two Lombardy sides are working in a climate of maximum collaboration to find an agreement. There is a clause inserted in the deal that gives Maldini and Massara a position of strength: Brescia would have to return 40% of the €10m loan fee paid a year ago in the event he does not join permanently. The Rossoneri management expects to close the affair by the start of preseason on 8 July.
