Calcio Mercato are reporting that AC Milan have decided to buy out Chelsea FC defender Fikayo Tomori at the end of the season after his loan. The current buy out clause is set at 28 million euros but Milan will look to lower this. The report notes that Milan will likely pull the full amount if they cannot lower the transfer fee. critically note that at least 2 out of the 3 parties will need the desire to find an agreement for this to work, hence, a lot actually depends on the will of the player to remain at Milan.

Antonio Vitiello is confirming the reports that Milan would like to redeem Tomori this summer and notes that the negotiations will open in a few weeks. The club are very impressed by the England international and Milan are looking at how to manage the cost.

Nicolo Schira is reporting that talks are ongoing over a reduction of the buy out between Milan and Chelsea but notes that Chelsea do not want to give any leeway.

Franco Baresi speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport has said,

“We’ll do everything to sign him on a permanent deal. Two months are remaining until the end of the season, and it’s not only up to Milan.”
