Romano: Milan planning talks with Chelsea as they are ‘really really impressed’ with centre-back

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ‘really really impressed’ with Fikayo Tomori and are planning talks with Chelsea over his future, according to Fabrizio Romano.

MilanNews wrote earlier today how the Milan management insisted over 20 days that Chelsea agree to an option to buy for Tomori, so there was already a clear indication of what directors Maldini and Massara think of the English defender.

They could have sign him on loan without letting talks drag on, but they wanted a €28m option because they value the quality that he has. Not only that, but word has apparently filtered that the club seriously want to evaluate his permanent signing in the summer and the 23-year-old is the most likely to stay of the players currently on loan.

Fabrizio Romano now offered a small update on Tomori’s situation during his latest Here We Go podcast, and confirmed that Milan are happy with what they have seen so far.

“At the end of the season, Milan will sit with Chelsea and decide [about the future of Tomori], they are really really impressed with Tomori,” he said (via R1F).
