Tuttosport: Tomori has convinced Milan – talks begin with Chelsea over his permanent stay

By Oliver Fisher -

Fikayo Tomori has managed to convince everyone at Milan since his arrival and his permanent stay now looks more likely, a report claims.

As Tuttosport (via MilanLive) writes, Milan signed Tomori on loan with an option to buy set at €28m towards the end of the January transfer window. Chelsea – who are aware of the boy’s potential – insisted on setting a high price and that is the amount Milan will have to pay.

The paper adds that Milan are seriously thinking about keeping Tomori, as Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara have already started contacts with Chelsea to understand if there is the possibility of buying the player at a lower price than that established by the agreement in January.

Milan would like to spend a bit less than the €28million agreed, but it remains to be seen if the Blues will agree to a discount given how tough a negotiator their transfer chief Marina Granovskaia is.

Meanwhile, the English centre-back should be confirmed as a starter tomorrow night in Milan-Udinese, keeping captain Alessio Romagnoli on the bench.
