Tonali already agreed with Newcastle
According to Sky Italia, Sandro Tonali has already reached an agreement with the English club, who will be competing in the next Champions League after finishing 3rd in the Premier League. However, according to the same source, AC Milan are demanding €80 million from Newcastle.
An effort that the English club should make, probably including bonuses. According to Fabrizio Romano, Tonali is set to commit himself to Newcastle until 2029, where a salary of €8 million net per year awaits him, plus €2 million in bonuses. A transfer that seems to be on track.
