Milan have renegotiated new terms with both Brescia and Sandro, and now very little is missing for the official.
Sandro did not live up to the hype that accompanied his arrival and showed that despite his great talent, there is still a lot of room for growth for the 21-year-old Italian holding midfielder.
Milan had an option to buy out Tonali after his one-year loan at the club for €15 million plus €10 million bonuses. The Rossoneri decided to not use this option – and instead make a new deal with Brescia at reduced figures.
Talks have been ongoing between Paolo Maldini & Frederic Massara and Brescia President Massimo Cellino for a few weeks and an agreement seems to have been found. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, in addition to the €10m Milan paid for the loan of the player last year, the Rossoneri will also give Brescia €7m plus €5m of bonuses plus Giacomo Olzer, bringing the total deal to €25m.
As reported by Milannews.it, there have also been talks between Milan and Tonali’s agent Beppe Bozzo in regards to the deal. The Diavolo have apparently asked Sandro to reduce his salary and the player accepted the new offer of Milan in order to stay with the club, of whom he’s a lifelong fan.
Milannews.it reports that very little is now missing before Tonali’s official stay at Milan. The new season starts on July 8th and Stefano Pioli will hope to see Sandro at Milanello among his men.
