Fikayo Tomori has conceded he is appreciating life on loan at AC Milan, yet got over ideas that he wanted to join the Italian side for permanent once deal from Chelsea end.
Since leaving Stamford Bridge in January, Tomori has been fiercely impressive. He has forced his way into Milan’s starting lineup already, and it feels like we can’t go a day without five or six reports in Italy saying I Rossoneri are in love with the centre-back.
Milan have the choice to sign Tomori permanently toward the finish of the period for an expense of around £25m, despite the fact that reports have varied about whether Milan are set up to pay that sort of cash.
Regardless of the speculation, Tomori told La Gazzetta dello Sport that he is happy in Italy and feels it is the best place possible to fulfil his dream of becoming the greatest defender in the world.

“The goal is to be among the best in the world in my role, as soon as possible,” Tomori said. “I work for this every day. Serie A is like a university for defenders. I’m growing up and learning everything I can. Having Paolo Maldini as head of the technical department is like having to deal with [Lionel] Messi as a sporting director for a striker.
“I’m not the only one to decide my future. I have fun, I enjoy the moment, I’m happy to be here. I like Milan and I like Italy, I feel at home at AC Milan, but I honestly don’t think about the future.”
It was reported on Tuesday by the same outlet (via Sport Witness) that Milan chiefs already see Tomori as ‘untouchable’ and they are prepared to part with that £25m to make his loan move permanent.
