Never a day goes by in recent times without at least one article in the Italian media surrounding the future of Fikayo Tomori.
This all comes from how much the young defender has impressed since his arrival on loan from Stamford Bridge, and that €28m release clause is looking mighty tempting for the Serie A side.
Multiple reports have suggested it might be a bit much for Milan in their current financial state, and that was echoed by one of their directors, Frederic Massara.
Speaking about the Chelsea loanee, he said, relayed by Sport Mediaset: “The kid has shown he’s strong and has integrated well. We’re convinced of his quality. It’s a very high ourchase clause, and we’ll evaluate if we go forward, but we’re very satisfied with his impact so far”.
That confirms all the previous reports from the Italian media that Milan were seriously considering making Tomori’s loan permanent, all the while adding the Serie A club could ask Marina Granovskaia for a discount.
We all know how tough the Chelsea director can be when it comes to negotiating, so we’ll have to wait and see whether an agreement of that kind could be reached, or if it ends up being a ‘purchase clause or nothing’ situation, mirroring the Tiemoué Bakayoko situation a couple of years ago.
