AC Milan not going to buy Dalot, still interested in Tomori


AC Milan don’t want Portuguese versatile wing-back Diogo Dalot on a permanent transfer, however, they want to buy Chelsea loanee Fikayo Tomori on a permanent deal.

Milan took Dalot from Manchester United on a simple loan deal in the summer of 2021. Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s impeccable performances meant that Dalot couldn’t get into the starting XI.

Since arriving at the San Siro the 22-year-old right-back made 24 appearances in all competitions for the Rossoneri. He contributed with two goals and two assists.

Similarly, Tomori started in Serie A like a fish in the water. The 23-year-old English defender made 12 appearances for Stefano Pioli’s side and looked extremely promising in the deep defence.

Dalot to return to Manchester and Tomori to remain at Milan?

Milan might be tempted to buy the young Portuguese right-back if the price is right. Some reports claim that the Serie A outfit wants to see more from Dalot. The same Dalot who has been criticized for showing ‘great fatigue’ during matches.

But, Manchester United are convinced that the Portuguese defender will become a top player in future so it won’t be cheap for Pioli’s side if they want to buy Dalot. The same can be said about Fikayo Tomori.

AC Milan want Tomori after he took his chances brilliantly in the Rossoneri shirt this season. The Serie A side took him on loan as a backup for Simon Kjær and Alessio Romagnoli. However, Tomori’s performance made him undroppable from the starting lineup.

The England International is a top defender and he will fit perfectly into the squad with his pace as the other two defenders Kjær and Romagnoli don’t have much of it. However, Milan believe the asking price for Tomori is very high and they want to negotiate but Chelsea have said that they want the full €28 million.

It will be interesting to see what the future looks like for the two very highly rated defenders. Will they remain in Milan and in Serie A or they return to their parent clubs in the Premier League.
