Milan want to keep Fikayo Tomori beyond the initial loan period and have scheduled talks with Chelsea to solve the situation. There is a €28m buy-out clause in the contract, but Paolo Maldini wants a discount on the fee.
According to Tuttosport, as cited by PianetaMilan, the Rossoneri’s current priority is to secure the centre-back on a permanent basis. Arriving in January, he immediately conceived everyone and will be an important player next season.
The CEO of Milan, Ivan Gazidis, has realised that Chelsea’s request of €28m is in line with the transfer market. This week, new contacts will take place between the parties to see if the deal can be pushed over the line.
Milan will attempt to get a small discount of €3m, bringing the overall price down to €25m, but it’s unlikely that Chelsea will agree to this. Either way, Tomori is destined to remain at the club for many years to come.
