After a few weeks of waiting on the official update, Milan announced the permanent signing of Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea yesterday. It was a no-brainer for the Rossoneri after the great six months the centre-back had.
The Englishman arrived on an initial loan deal from Chelsea in January, quickly earning a spot in the starting XI. And after weeks of negotiations, the Rossoneri decided to pay the full amount of the buy-out clause, which was €28m.
As highlighted by Tuttosport this morning (via MilanNews), the full cost of the operation is €29m as the loan also cost €1m. It’s the fifth most expensive signing since Elliott Management took over Milan in the summer of 2018.
The heftier signings are Rafael Leao (€29.8), Krzysztof Piatek (€35m), Mattia Caldara (€36m) and Lucas Paqueta (€37.8m). It’s safe to say that Tomori has already been more successful than those four and hopefully, he will continue that way.
