Maldini opens up and announces that Chelsea deal is very close to being annnounced

Get the Chelsea word out there!

Fikayo Tomori’s loan move to AC Milan is ‘very close’ to being agreed, sporting director Paolo Maldini confirmed.

Tomori is a talent that was expected to be a massive part of the plans this season, but the fact he has fallen down the pecking order at the club and not really been given a chance, he sought a move away from the club

And that alerted Italian giants AC Milan, who have been massive fans of the young man for a while now and have decided to make a loan move till the end of the season, with an option to make the transfer permanent for £27million.

And Milan club legend Maldini revealed a deal is near completion but warned one miss step could scupper plans entirely, He said: “It’s very close, we’re in between confirming his signing and not signing him at all, it could all break down with just one detail.

“We saw in him the quality to throw him into the mix with our current defenders, so that’s why we want him.”

We have said it before and we will say it again, it is a massive shame that Tomori is not able to make an impact on this side, but at the end of the day, this is a massive opportunity for the lad to go to Italy and win Seria A, Milan are favourites to end the dominance by Juventus.

We dont want him to leave on a permanent basis, but the experience will surely make him a better player ahead of next season?
