As the Chelsea defender became increasingly dismayed at his place at the club, there were always going to be many suitors lining up to woo Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori. And much to the rejoicing of AC Milan, the Italian team eventually won the race to engage in the services of the centreback.
AC Milan made its first real contact with Chelsea over the same time, growing its interest in the defender over the past week. And between both sides, things have progressed incredibly rapidly, with Tomori asserting his desire to transfer to the club.
Sitting down at the table to chalk out Tomori’s transfer to Italy’s nitty-gritty, both clubs eventually reached an agreement. The Chelsea defender is expected to move to AC Milan later this month on loan until the end of the season, Fabrizio Romano has reported.
The contract also includes an option for AC Milan to permanently sign Tomori for 26 million pounds once the deal is cut short. The Serie A outfit, however, does not have an obligation to buy the defender.
Fabrizio Romano said of the Twitter deal, Fikayo Tomori is expected to join Chelsea’s AC Milan. The agreement is expected to be concluded next week on a loan with a [no obligation] purchase option of about EUR 30 million.
In the next few days, Tomori will fly to Milano. Soon, here we go.
AC Milan upped the ante after losing out in Mohamed Simakan’s race for their pursuit of the player. As the side aims to improve its position at the top of Serie A, the club has been assiduously scouring for a name to strengthen its backline.
With the three points seeing them stay above Inter Milan, AC Milan are currently in the first place. For both sides with Chelsea, the arrangement is supposed to be a good proposal not to miss out on a wonder kid who has demonstrated his expertise in abundance.
