Tomori set to become Milan’s fourth-most expensive defensive signing – the full top ten

By Oliver Fisher -

Fikayo Tomori is all set to become the fourth-most expensive defender in AC Milan’s history, according to a report.

MilanLive writes how at the top of the ranking is Leonardo Bonucci who joined from Juventus for €42m back in the summer of 2017, also becoming the most expensive signing in the history of the club, though there is some debate about whether Rui Costa actually cost more.

Bonucci stayed just one season before returning to Juve, and as part of that operation Milan welcomed Mattia Caldara for €35m as well as Gonzalo Higuain on loan. Due to repeated injuries, he played only two games as a starter for Milan against Dudelange in the Europa League and Lazio in the Coppa Italia.

Alessandro Nesta is third on the list, as potentially one of the best signings of the Berlusconi era. Galliani signed him from a Lazio side in serious crisis for €31m, a figure that Sandro firmly repaid on the field.

Tomori is at fourth place as he will join for €28m, while fifth is Alessio Romagnoli who cost €25m when he signed from Roma in 2015. Andrea Conti (€24m), Theo Hernandez (€21.5m), Mateo Musacchio (€18m) and Kakhaber Kaladze (€16m) make up the rest of the top ten.

  1. That 31m for Nesta wasnt necessarily a huge amount in the market, but was considerable for Milan at the time. Especially when. We had tried our hands at the likes of Roque Junior and Larson. That 31m was worth every single penny wnd then some. And to think we got to enjoy Nesta with Maldini, Stam and Cafu and Billy. Us Milan fans were spoiled. I haven’t even mentioned the greatest of them all in Franco..

    Tomori, Kjaer and Hernandez are a step in the right direction for our back 4. Id love to see us add a totally dominant defender like Desailley to our ranks in the next year or two.

  2. It’s such a shame that those two players are now the most expensive defenders of our history, after years of it being the legendary Sandro Nesta.
