The Milan management are looking to give Stefano Pioli a midfield of quality and depth ahead of the 2021-22 season, a journalist has claimed.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Carlo Pellegatti (via MilanNews) spoke about the Sandro Tonali situation and confirmed that both the mangement and the owners Elliott Management are happy with the strategy of trying to get a discount, with some doubts about the possible outlay for the midfielder after a fluctuating year.
The initial formula was a €10m loan with a €15m option to buy and €10m in potential bonuses, but Massimo Cellino – Brescia’s president – seems to be happy to take a fee which should not exceed €20-22m with Giacomo Olzer going the other way as a counterpart. The negotiation is ‘about to close’ and it will bring a young player with huge potential who will grow.
Milan are continuing to invest and will bring the amount spent to around €55-60m, and then attention will turn to Tiemoue Bakayoko of Chelsea to complete the department.
