AC Milan have ensured that Sandro Tonali will remain at the club on a permanent basis after his loan spell, according to a report.
As confirmed by the newspaper Tuttosport (via MilanLive), Milan will sign Tonali for a fixed €10m plus €5m in potential bonuses which represents a €10m discount on the previous agreement of €15m fixed plus €10m bonuses.
It comes at a cost though, as the deal features the inclusion of Primavera attacking midfielder Giacomo Olzer as a counterpart. Brescia will also guarantee a resale percentage of about 15% on Tonali.
The operation will be official by June 16 when the option to buy expires, but the paper is keen to stress that Milan have never had doubts about keeping the Italy international, but both for budgetary reasons and in light of his performances on the pitch they decided to negotiate amore favourable terms. Relations with Brescia are good and their president Massimo Cellino has agreed to talks, but now Milan expect growth from Tonali.
