Tuttosport: Maldini to begin talks over lowering €15m price for midfielder – the possible solutions

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are likely to sit at the negotiating table with Brescia in an attempt to lower the amount of Sandro Tonali’s option to buy, a report claims.

Today’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive) explains that Milan gave Brescia guarantees that they would sign him permanently which is why they decided to let him leave on a loan with option to buy deal. The Rossoneri paid €10m for his loan, while a price of €15m was agreed to make it permanent, plus €10m in potential bonuses that could make it €35m in total.

The newspaper writes that it is likely that director Paolo Maldini will sit at the table with Massimo Cellino to ask for a discount on the €15m, perhaps by deferring the expense or moving by moving it to summer 2022. In the next few days Maldini is expected to begin discussion, but if it is not possible to reach an agreement then it is likely that Milan will buy him anyway.

Even if Tonali did not experience a season as a protagonist, the Rossoneri club believes in him for the future.
