The negotiations between Chelsea and AC Milan for a six-month loan (or eighteen-month, depending on sources) appear to be progressing at a decent pace, with the value of the buy-option built into the deal seemingly the only sticking point at the moment.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio in fact (via Sempre Milan), the Serie A-leaders are hoping to close this transfer by Monday, having just announced another loan-signing in Soualiho Meïté, from Torino.

Milan are reportedly pushing for the buy-option to be set at €25m, while Chelsea want the full €30m. Meanwhile, as per Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea are also trying to make sure that we receive a €3m loan fee, as opposed to Milan’s offer of just €1m.

The concern that’s bigger than any financial consideration is of course whether Tomori would get the necessary game-time at Milan to further his own development, but with the 23-year-old himself said to be pushing for this move, we just might see him in Rossoneri colors soon.
