Romano: Chelsea defender moving to Milan permanently for €30m is ‘not guaranteed’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are set to complete a move for Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori but it is unclear whether he will stay beyond June, Fabrizio Romano claims.

Milan director Paolo Maldini confirmed that negotiations are ongoing as he spoke before last night’s win over Cagliari, and according to what we have learned from Pietro Balzano Prota it is a done deal.

As soon as the player gets the final ok, he will leave for Milan. The formula is the one that has been talked about in recent days: loan with option to buy at €25-30m.

Fabrizio Romano spoke on his ‘Here We Go’ podcast and confirmed that Tomori will indeed be making his way to the Rossoneri, but it is unclear currently how long for.

“It’s not guaranteed that Milan will pay €30m for Tomori before the start of next season,” he said (via R1F).

It is also worth remembering that Frank Lampard was asked earlier in the week about the situation surrounding Tomori and his thoughts are regarding a potential loan spell for him, confirming that the plan is to send him out to get more regular playing time.
