Sandro Tonali is officially a player of Milan, after undergoing the medical and signing the contract today.

It’s finally official: Tonali, one of the most exciting young midfielders has joined Milan – the team of his heart and the one he has supported his entire life.

The official statement on the Milan website reads on Wednesday evening:

“Milan is delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Tonali from Brescia Calcio on loan with the option to make the deal permanent. The player will wear the number 8 jersey. 

“Born in Lodi on 8 May 2000, Tonali started playing football with Lombardia Uno, a Milan academy, before moving to Piacenza and then, aged 12, to Brescia. Tonali came through the youth ranks of the Rondinelle, making his senior début in Serie B aged 17. In three seasons as a professional player with Brescia, Tonali made 89 appearances, scoring 7 goals.

“Sandro has also played for the Italian U19 (11 apps) and U21 (5 apps) teams and made his Italian senior debut on 19 October 2019. He has 3 international caps for the Italian National team.

Frederic Massara, Paolo Maldini, Sandro Tonali and Ivan Gazidis at Casa Milan. (@acmilan.com)

“Ivan Gazidis, CEO of Milan, said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Tonali to Milan. He is one of the most promising young talents in international football. Sandro has a love for the Club and an understanding of its values that will add to what we want to build together. Welcome Sandro!’.

“Paolo Maldini, Milan’s Technical Area Director added: ‘We are excited to welcome Sandro to the Rossoneri family. As a talented, young midfielder he will not only embrace the values of Milan but also make a significant contribution to the future success of the Club.'”

The figures are the deal are the following: Milan pay Brescia €10m for the loan while the option to buy is €15m + €10m of bonuses. In addition, Brescia will be owed 15% of a future sale, should the price of Tonali be above €30 million. The player signed a five-year deal worth €2m per season.

Tonali joins Tommaso Pobega, Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer in the center of the midfield. However, Milan are still looking to add one more starting-qualify midfielder to the squad.

Blanton, if the right price comes , I don’t mind him being sold . Paqueta is skilful but his problem is about short accuracy . He may need to start personalised training to perfect is shooting. If he can perfect his short and passing purposefulness, he will bench Calhanoglu. I don’t support him being sold cheaply .

The main piece has finally arrived.
GK sub acquired, which, to be honest, wasn’t that bad at all during his time at Fiorentina, talking about Tatarusanu.
Mykolenko agent had a meeting with Massara so as soon as Laxalt leaves we most likely be getting a very exciting deputy for Theo.
CB will decide the fate of our mercato and most importantly whether we should even dream about Scudetto.

Forza Sandro! Forza Maldini! Forza Milan!

CB will be crucial for our season i think. Kjaer is great (prob played better than Romagnoli last season). But Kjaer is also injury prone, he gets small injurys after every couple of games. Duarte/Musachio is not good enough in my opinion they need a solid back up.

we need one of these guys (from most preferable to least preferable): Upamecano, Ginter, Eric Garcia, Milenkovic, Ruben Dias, Kounde, Lisandro Martinez, Christensen, Kumbulla…
The rest we shouldn’t even consider in my opinion.

Their subs on the other hand cost more than their starting 11. Tolisso is a 45M bench warmer, so is Pavard and Hernandez is a 80M purchase. And it’s unfair comparing Bayern to Milan, they are notorious for raiding other Bundesliga teams and getting every prospect from them, imagine us controlling the whole Serie A league, us being able to buy Orsolini, Kumballa, Locatelli and some other players who had a breakthrough this season. Goretzka and Lewandowski deals were done for free, FOR FREE. These aren’t normal deals. they have done the same with Nianzou and Nubel this season, both… Read more »

Umtiti is a lefty, we already have main left side CB, Romagnoli. Nacho isn’t a good option. not even as a sub would I be happy about his acquisition. We need right sided player, that’s why I suggested Upamecano, Eric Garcia and Ginter they all play on the right side of CB pair.

who says a cb pairing must consist of a left footed and a right footed cb? i dont remember baresi and costacurta being different footed. what matters is the type of cb. soft, technical cb like bonucci need to be paired with strong, no nonsense cb like chiellini. pair bonucci with demiral, it’ll work. pair bonucci with de ligt then it wont work well. ferdinand – vidic, kohler – sammer, stam – nesta, i could go on all day.

Yeah, 2 right footed defenders have worked but name 1 good, not even great, CB pair with 2 left footed players. Not having lefty on the left side is ok, Lenget plays on the left side, when he’s right footed. Ramos right footed, he used to be a RB, but now plays on the left side of the pair. But name 1 left footed CB playing on the right side.

lol that there are not many successful left footed cb pairing is more due to left footed players being minorities. whether ur left or right footed matters when ur winger or fullback because u have to send crosses into the box but playing in the middle, ur footing doesnt really matter because u have so much space

So even though every coach in history of football avoided left-footed CB pairing, even though world cup winner tactician Deschamp excludes Laporte from national team cause he has a lot of left-footed CBs and not enough right-footed ones and takes Adil Rami instead, even though Carragher saying that although he admires Ake his pairing with Laporte wound’t work, you still insist that isn’t not a big deal?

Ake is versetile player who can play CB, LB and CDM for starters. Holland 78, you must mean Krol. Ambidexterity, if you didn’t know, means that a person can utilize both right and left evenly. so Krol isn’t lefty nor righty. Samuel played with Cordoba, Miha was also LB. so if either Miha or Materazzi subbed in it still didn’t change the fact that the main pairing was a lefty, Samuel, and a righty, Cordoba.

Not that i disagree but im pretty sure when upamecano signed his new leipzig contract it had a 50 mil release clause added but only able to activate it from next summer. Anyways i think the only way we would be able to get him was if we qualified for next years cl and even then there would be huge competition to get him. Fofana seems like the best choice for me as well but i for one wouldnt spend 30 mil on a defender currently but if maldini can strike a favourable deal with his club id say let… Read more »

50m or 60m, it doesnt really matter. bottom line is milan cant afford him or chiesa. 50m should be used to make tonali and rebic deals permanent. regarding rw, saladmaker, diaz, samu, leao and rebic (hell even conti, kalulu and roback) can play as rw. how many more do milan really need? colombo, massaro, ambrosini, these guys werent world beaters but they did their parts making milan machine performed well. what milan need to do is build a system in which all players can contribute positively. milan 96/97 were star studded team but they failed horribly, unlike 98/99 team. my… Read more »

agreed. That’s why after GK and LB, we should invest in a very good CB. We have Tonali, Pobega, Kessie and Bennacer in CM/CDM, Chalha, Diaz and Paqueta in CAM, if Bakayoko comes I guess Paqueta has to leave and that’s it for the midfield. Our attack was done ever since Ibra’s extension, Colombo and Maldini showed their quality and should be tried out as subs for the upcoming season.

You guys are really ok with only 1 of those wingers scoring goals regularly(rebic)? Leao, salemakers, samu, didn’t even have a combined total of 10 goals and y’all are ok with that? I haven’t checked but I’m positive their assists from that right side are low as fuck to. Guys, that right side is slow asf, lacks creativity, lacks goals and lacks assist. Diaz is good but he’s not fast, and if he explodes it will be from playing more central than out wide. Kalulu seems good but I wouldn’t put his speed in the same class as Hernandez, but… Read more »

Again I agree, but who are you going to take? Todibo is left-sided so is Umtiti, Dembele will cost minimum 50M and I don’t think we should go for him when there is Chiesa for the same price. they have striker problem themselves so we can’t get deputy for Ibra from them + Colombo has been very convincing in friendlies. Midfield? Rafinha and Carles Alena the latter being only worthwhile option. Jordi Alba is old, so is Busquests and we can’t bench them with their wages.

thanks for explaining what ambidextrous means bahahah. zidane, nedved, lahm, maldini, facchetti, brehme, kimmich are ambidextrous but theyre naturally right footed. krol might’ve been ambidextrous but he IS left footed, which means left footed cb pairing DOES work. #fact

nope it’s not a fact. I would have nothing to say if Umtiti or any left-footed CBs that you want to see in our team were to be ambidextrous, meaning their dominant foot doesn’t matter, not that they are naturally left footed or right footed, if there are ambidextrous they are that and only that. The fact is Umtiti isn’t ambidextrous and would make pairing him with Romagnoli counter productive .

are* you*. you need some original content. “r u slow?” “r u 9?” bleacher which is a journalistic website and transfermakt are completely different kinds of sites. one gives you opinions of some journalist as you yourself: best left footed players of all time” on bleacherreport and they actually put maldini and di stefano there.” and there is transfermarkt with player profiles and raw information, no personal opinions or analysis, just straight out facts. don’t call me mr aficionado you were calling yourself that.

so according to transfermakrt, ali daei scored more intl goals than messi and pele. so he’s better than both? thats why people should actually watch football not just read stats like analysts.
no response for lenglet – umtiti? i guess its settled then, 2 left footed cb pairing DOES work *wink

what did u say? u never acknowlegded that lenglet – umtiti worked, u just admitted u didnt know lenglet was left footed, which implied u never watched barca

A CB is a PRIORITY now. and a good one to rotate with kjaer. We need someone young and strong who can be with us for years to come. No other signing is important right now imo.

Taking our funds in to considerations, im thinking Fofana might be the best solution. Upamecano is the best but its unrealistic transfer. I want to add Ajer from Celtic here as well his market value is at 4mil at the moment so he might be a good solution as well.

I am starting to sound like a broken record but Johnathan Tah is my pick for CB. Strong, great arial skills, and good technique for his size. And he’s only 25 (with a lot of experience including German NT) and should be available for 30-35 mil.

I think the menagment dosent plan to spend more than 20mil on the new CB. They would have went for Milenkovic if they had 35mil. So thats why Fofana is the most realistic one, he is valued at 10mil at the moment.

don’t make numbers up, every recent report says that Fofana costs 25-30M.

Thats his market price at the moment 10mil. His club can ask 150mil but that dosent changes his market price.

Yeah mate, there’s too many suitors for Fofana for him to go at such a low price. I rate Tah higher than Milnkovic, especially considering that Tah complements Romag perfectly.

I thinnk 15-20mil would be fair for Fofana since he is young and in great form, i dont see any one paying them 30mil. Dont know for Tah, i know Pioli wants Milenkovic since he worked with him in Fiorentina and can play as a RB as well, he fits in the young players project as well, plus he has a lot of seria A exp, but his price is very high.

This is so great – I’m bouncing off the walls. And I want to give a big shout out to INTER MILAN. First Pirlo now Tonali… I’ll be forever grateful for your club’s never-ending stupidity.

Role-wise, Kessie, Tonali, and Bennacer are reminiscents of Gattuso-Pirlo-Seedorf trio..very exciting indeed.

I have faith in Paqueta too. Not sure why people want him to go. He had a bad one season – Usually coming on as sub and playing in different positions. He’s skillful, just needs to settle his feet down more. It would be a disaster to see him move elsewhere and become a star there. I would give Paqueta another season.

Im with you all here as he deffently has the talent to become a star player but whether milan is the right place to completely fullfuill his talent is a different question for me though. Either way i wouldnt mind him staying with us for another season and see if he fares better than the previous one.

We just need money. I also have faith in him. And if we keep him he could play CM(4th choice) and CAM(2nd choice). But I don’t know why aren’t we spending more aggressively when there were reports of a 30M transfer budget. We are currently only spending the money that came from Suso, R.R, and Gustavo deals. After the GK transfer which will apparently cost us 500K we will still be in 11M positive. If Laxalt leaves for 7-8M we will spend extra 3-4M for Mykolenko. From Krunic sale we would get another 7-8M, so we’ll be in 15M positive.… Read more »

If they plan to play Paqueta as a CAM than keep him, many times he performed better than Hakan (he needs to improve his long range shooting tho Hakan is clearly better in that). If they plan to play him as a winger then better sell him, since that is just wasting his talent. He is clearly a mid and even when he is deployed on the wings like last time he tryes to go in the mid of the field. His second position would be CM he is physicly strong enough to even fill for Kessie in there if… Read more »

Paquetta is a huge talent that hasn’t been given enough chances (in his best positions). Yes he’s a bit raw, and needs to sharpen practically all his skill set, but the guy never received the minutes his talent deserves. I can definitely see him doing both Bennasser and Hakan’s roles.

On the hand, we need to generate some cash from sales apparently (few people know exactly how much our budget is), so it might be a reasonable decision. Still below 25-30 mil sounds too little.

Just watched Boubakary Soumare on youtube. He is similar to Kessie. Florentina Luis similar to Baka. I think Milan needs the type of player like Luis/Baka more since Tonali in. And considering the price, Luis is more favourite.

No, he’s similar to Pogba, more like a raw version. I prefer him out of Baka and Luis… He’s gonna be a gem later that we won’t be able to keep from the likes of Real Madrid and co…

Did you know tonali had better defensive stats than both kessie and bennacer and most likely the other 2 as well. Also when it comes to key passes he obliterates them. We need a player than controls the midfield with their passing and ball retention.

It’s crazy how calm and collected he plays despite his age.
I also notice he loves to send long ball to the striker or to the wings.
I hope milan can get a fast right wing to take advantage of tonali’s pass.
Can’t wait to see him play with ibra, rebic, theo and the others

Milan should buy these players Wesley fofana, lago, boubakry samoure, Jerome boga, then we can dream about trophies
