Fikayo Tomori will be staying at Milan as they have chosen to buy him out.
Tomori arrived at Milan in January, on loan with option to buy from Chelsea, and the Englishman has managed to greatly impress the coach, the fans and the club.
Tomori took the place of Alessio Romagnoli at the heart of the defense and formed an excellent partnership with Simon Kjær, which helped the Diavolo qualify for the Champions League for the first time in years.
Fik’s stay at Milan never really seemed in question, but the official statement only arrived today:
“Milan is delighted to announce the exercising of the option for the permanent transfer of Oluwafikayomi Oluwadamilola Tomori from Chelsea. The English defender, who made 22 appearances and scored one goal over the last season, will continue to play with the Club until 30 June 2025.”
The Rossoneri will pay Chelsea €28.5 million for the permanent signature of Tomori, who is currently resting. Next month he’ll be at Milanello with his teammates to start preparing for 2021/22.
