Sky: Tonali announced by Newcastle as Milan agree club-record sale

By Oliver Fisher -

It feels like it has been a long time coming, but Sandro Tonali has been officially announced as a Newcastle United player.

According to the latest from Sky (via MilanNews), the Italian midfielder is expected in the city on Wednesday and the confirmation of his move should be made official very shortly.

He has already undergone his medical while he was in Romania with Italy’s U21 side as they suffered a group stage exit in the European Championship last month.

As per Sky, the 23-year-old should join the Premier League club in a deal that could hit €80m when factoring in the various performance-related bonuses that are tied into the operation.

We attempted to pick apart the background of Tonali’s exit and what it means for Milan’s project under the new management in a recent feature, with eyes now on how the money received is spent to rebuild the squad.

    1. Right – because these stupid yanks announced they’re not buying anyone to replace Tonali or strengthen the rest of the squad. I missed that press conference but you’re probably spot on.

      1. Spending 21 millions and giving 4 million a year salary to an injury prone bench player is more than enough to see the competence of these clowns.

  1. “Changes sometimes cause growth for everyone.” – Tonali.

    Everyone is the key word. We know he’s not thinking of himself only when agreeing the deal. He believes his sale would also do good for Milan’s growth. And that might be one of the most important reasons. Let’s hope that we do not waste his sacrifice (to some extent).

    1. Exactly. I get the feeling he accepted the move to make some short term money for himself and Milan. So where all this hair clenching is coming from I’m not entirely sure. He wasn’t forced out at gunpoint – he said “yes” to drunken tarts on a cold Saturday night and a fat pay check.

  2. I am happy for Sandro, he has done nothing wrong, however Cardinale is a different story, he knows nothing about Milan soccer and it’s cultural importance, he looks at it as a goose who lays golden eggs, a money machine. Looks as if he is gutting it like a fresh fish.

  3. So much for moving forward, this is the biggest step back you can make, I know let’s sell our biggest assett and the one player who would bleed for the colours, great move idiots

  4. Yeah – that’s what happens when a cornerstone of the team gets told he’s expendable. Enjoy Sandro and f*ck the trolls.
