Gianluca di Marzio is reporting that AC Milan have found an agreement with Brescia through the negotiations with their President Massimo Cellino and have secured an even larger discount to the reports last week. Milan were going to pay 15 million euros in the buy out and bonuses for Tonali and send Giacomo Olzer as part of the deal following the 10 million euro payment for the one year loan. The report notes that there is an additional discount now. He is reporting that the permanent move will go ahead.

All parties want to get the deal over the line but the final green light is missing from Elliot to close the operation. One thing seems certain at the moment, Tonali will be in red and black again.

Sport are reporting that FC Barcelona tried to make a late move for Tonali as they requested information on him a few weeks ago but the economics of the deal made it complicated.
