Sandro Tonali Newcastle United transfer done deal! €70m bid accepted by Milan for record sale

Sandro Tonali Newcastle United transfer update: Newcastle United have completed a deal with AC Milan for Sandro Tonali. The valuation of the offer is around €70 million including add-ons, and the structure has been finalised after discussions between the two clubs.

More importantly, Newcastle have offered Tonali double his current salary to make the move to the Premier League. The medical assessment for the move will be carried out in Romania, much like the process for Bruno Guimaraes last summer. The announcement will be made after the player completes his duties with the Italy U21 international team in the U-21 Euros.

Newcastle have reached a full agreement with the player on personal terms. They have presented him with a six-year contract until 2029 and a salary of €8 million plus €2 million in add-ons. Tonali will become the most expensive Italian player in history, while also becoming Newcastle’s record signing.

For Tonali, it seems like the chance to play in the Premier League while also earning double his current wages has been a huge factor in making the decision. Not to mention, Newcastle will also play in the Champions League and can offer him minutes at an elite level alongside the best teams in the world.

The Magpies have been linked with a number of creative midfielders this summer. But it now seems that they have identified Sandro Tonali as the best option to play alongside Bruno Guimaraes. The coming days will be crucial for the transfer, as Milan will discuss the structure of the deal with Newcastle to potentially reach an agreement. 

The Italian will become the first signing for the Magpies this summer, and will be expected to make a huge impact for his new team.

Sandro Tonali Newcastle United update: Who will replace him at Milan? 

Milan have three names on their transfer list to replace Tonali should he indeed leave the club. One of them is Sassuolo’s Davide Frattesi, who is a man in demand this summer. Several clubs including Juventus are in the race for the Italian, but there is nothing definitive over his future as of yet.

Milan are also trying to sign Daichi Kamada on a free transfer, after the attacking midfielder left Eintracht Frankfurt. They have offered him a deal, but have not been able to get it over the line just yet. As a result, it will be interesting to see how they cope with the loss of one of their best players, while having the funds to replace him unlike previous cases. 

Hakan Calhanoglu, Franck Kessie and Gianluigi Donnarumma all left as free agents. But, Milan will be compensated for Tonali, which will provide them a significant boost in the transfer market this summer.
