Milan’s Sandro Tonali set for Newcastle United medical today

Milan midfielder Sandro Tonali will undergo his Newcastle United medical today and Italy Under-21s game against France Under-21s yesterday was his last game as a Rossoneri player.

Luca Bianchin today has reported that at Palazzo Parigi, a hotel famous for being the base of Fabio Paratici’s Juventus, Newcastle United sporting director Dan Ashworth and scout chief Steve Nickson were present and the Magpies tied the last few ends of their move for Tonali. Newcastle will pay a sum close to €70 million plus bonuses and a percentage on the resale, which will take the sum to about €80 million.

Tonali will sign a six-year deal worth €8 million per season and bonuses of €2 million per season. He will undergo his medical in Romania today, as Nickson and the midfielder’s agent flew from Milan yesterday. The Rossoneri will have a significant amount to reinvest in the side and Davide Frattesi is seen as the replacement for Tonali. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is also of interest, with a deal for Daichi Kamada already having been agreed and it is expected to be completed next week.
