AC Milan may have been handed a boost in their hopes of keeping Fikayo Tomori, as the centre-back has revealed that he ‘likes being in Milan’.
Tomori arrived on loan from Chelsea in the January transfer window with an option to buy set at €28m and the Englishman continues to show he could well be worth every penny with good performance after good performance.
The Englishman was asked about his future beyond the end of a season during an interview with The Times, and he did reveal that he is happy at Milan though he didn’t give much else away.
“At the moment, I’m enjoying being in Milan, playing games and having this experience. Whether I’m going to stay here longer or not I don’t know. I try not to think that far ahead,” he said.
“The people who need to think that far ahead will do that and whatever needs to be done will be done. There’s still a long way to go in the season but I know that I have it in me to do it.
“Mentally, I was ready to do it and if the opportunity comes at Chelsea, or here, or at another club, or wherever it may be, I’m prepared for it and can learn a lot from it, so it’s an exciting time for myself.”
Many Chelsea fans have expressed discontent over Tomori’s departure, especially because there is an option to buy included in the deal, and for some it is not right to potentially give up on a talented academy product.
