Milan brought in Fikayo Tomori on loan from Chelsea in January and the centre-back has been a huge success, quickly adapting to Italian football. Therefore, the Rossoneri are keen on signing him permanently.
Considering that the buy-out option is set at €28m, it would be a significant investment for Milan. At the same time, Tomori has shown that his price tag should be higher and the feeling is that the deal is well worth it.
As reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Chelsea have already made their stance very clear on the matter: either Milan pay the €28m or no deal. In other words, they won’t agree to any discounts as they know the value of the player.
Securing Champions League qualification is thus extremely important for the Rossoneri as it would give them the extra funds needed. They are currently in second place and although the race is very tight, it would be a disaster to finish outside the top four.
