MN: Milan rate Tomori’s long-term signing from Chelsea
According to a report, Fikayo Tomori has the highest chance of staying at Milan beyond the summer.
As MilanNews writes that when Milan management insisted for over 20 days that Chelsea agree to an option to buy Tomori there was already a clear indication of what Maldini and Massara thought of the English defender. They could have borrowed it without dragging out the talks, but they wanted a $ 28 million option because they appreciate the quality it has.
Tomori is worth its price right now – at least when measured against the handful of games seen so far – and that’s why Casa Milan is filtering the idea that the club is looking to seriously evaluate its firm commitment in the summer. It is still too early for calculations, a lot depends on the final position in the league and the available budget, but the 23-year-old is the most likely to stay with the players currently on loan.
He’s a defender with traits that are hard to find as he intelligently detects danger, a mastiff in the mark, and a player who doesn’t give in an inch. Not everyone is capable of coming from a different league and playing in a derby after a few days so Milan are already thinking about their redemption but negotiations have not yet started.
