This is one of the biggest transfers of this early summer: Sandro Tonali will leave AC Milan and join Newcastle for 70 million euros, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano. If the amount of the operation is confirmed, he will become the most expensive Italian player in history.
Sandro Tonali will become the most expensive Italian player in history. According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, his transfer from AC Milan to Newcastle is complete for 70 million euros, including bonuses. It’s more than Jorginho, who also arrived in the Premier League a few years ago, but at Chelsea, against a check for 57 million euros.
After three seasons at AC Milan, Tonali, 23, will therefore discover a new championship. Since his arrival in Lombardy, he had several times confided his desire to register for the long term with the Rossoneri, until he spent his entire career there to become a legendary player. He is going to leave the club earlier than expected, despite everything having the title of Italian champion in the bag.
A 6-year contract and 7 million euros per year
At Newcastle, he must receive an annual salary of 7 million euros, which can rise to 9 million with bonuses. The contract he will sign will bind him to the English club until 2029. AC Milan will probably have a clause which will guarantee the club a percentage on resale.
The Magpies, who had already paid 70 million euros last summer for the transfer of Alexander Isak, are once again approaching their record – which will therefore be equaled if the bonuses are reached and paid to AC Milan.
