Fikayo Tomori arrived on an initial loan deal back in January and impressed a lot in the Milan backline, quickly learning himself a starting spot. Fortunately, the Rossoneri have reached an agreement for a permanent transfer.
As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio on Sky Italia last night (via MilanLive), the deal is more or less done as Milan will exercise the €28m clause. They were looking to get a discount which Chelsea refused, but they agreed to receive the payment in instalments.
The announcement should arrive this week, per the reporter, and Milan will thus have another important part of their squad secured. After the loan spell, it was impossible for Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara to say no even at €28m.
Hopefully, the Englishman will continue to perform well for the club alongside Simon Kjaer, who is one of the candidates for the captain’s armband next season. However, that will all be decided later.
