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.
