There was a brief period there when it appeared Fikayo Tomori’s future at Milan was in doubt.

A series of bad games had spread some doubt among the Serie A side’s board as to whether paying Chelsea the pre-agreed €28m was a good idea, but Gazzetta dello Sport report on Thursday it’s certainly still on their minds.

Looking at a couple of deals Milan could do, they touch upon the Blues loanee’s situation and explain Sunday’s important game against Juventus could be decisive.

Milan are ‘ready to get close to the €28m agreed with Chelsea’, and while the player ‘feels good’ at the Serie A club, missing out on a Champions League spot could be crucial in his decision making.

If the Italians were to end up outside of the top four, then Tomori would need to decide whether he wants to leave a club that is currently in the final of Europe’s elite competition for one that will be stuck in the Europa League for a season.

Quite the dilemma for the 23-year-old, who will want to prioritise game time above all at this stage of his career.
