Full Agreement Reached For Sandro Tonali Transfer To Newcastle – Medical Tomorrow



Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has tweeted that in the meeting this afternoon in Milan, Italy, full agreement was reached between Newcastle United (represented by Sporting Director Dan Ashworth and Head of Recruitment Steve Nixon) and AC Milan for the transfer of Sandro Tonali to Newcastle.

The fee has been agreed at around €70M with around €5M add-ons, and the structure of the deal has also been agreed to.

Tonali will get a long-term six-year contract worth €8M/year in wages.

If that’s accurate, that’s about £132K/week.

As time goes by and Newcastle’s revenues increase, we will need to pay higher wages to new players coming in and at the same time increase the wages of players already at the club like Joelinton and Bruno Guimaraes, who have been stars over the last 18 months.

Tonali’s agent Giuseppe Riso is on his way to Romania where Tonali is playing for the Italian U21 team tonight, and it’s expected the medical can be completed tomorrow or on Saturday at the latest

The papers are being readied for signature by all involved parties for tomorrow, when the deal will hopefully be completed successfully.

Here is the latest from Fabrizio Romano:

This is one terrific signing by Newcastle, assuming there are no hitches with the medical, and it’s being reported Tonali was Eddie Howe’s number one transfer target this summer.

It shows the sky-high ambitions of our new owners, and Tonali will have an important role to play as the defensive midfielder protecting the back four.

He can also launch attacks from the back and allow Bruno Guimaraes and others to move further up the field into more attacking positions.

This all sounds good great to us.

Did I say this is one terrific signing?

🙂

    That’s okay as I don’t think I would have won with auto corrects Allison starting out wide. 🙂

    Thank you to Mickey G from over the road for pointing out that I’d inadvertently gave him a point v Chelsea. This will be corrected on the next table.

    Next up we entertain Everton on Tuesday evening at 7:30 and is live on TNT. Eddie’s presser should be tomorrow. It might take some time for him to go through the injury list.

    Dubravka,
    Krafth, Schar, Burn, Hall
    Longstaff, Bruno, Willock
    Murphy, Isak, Barnes

    My working theory is Trippier won’t start and Anderson will be kept as an impact sub. I’m also concerned about Schar who seemed to be holding his hamstring towards the end of the Wolves game.

    Saturday sees us in the Capital as we visit Fulham. We’re down to the bare bones of the team but who will Eddie pick? Kick off is 3pm BST so entries will close at 1. Eddie’s presser should be tomorrow morning.
