Sandro Tonali will complete his move to Newcastle in the next few days, according to the player’s agent.
The Magpies are closing in on a deal to sign the AC Milan star a proposed deal worth £60million.
With Tonali currently away with Italy’s under-21s at the European Championships, representatives from both clubs have flown to Romania for talks with the player and his agent, Guiseppe Riso, regarding a move.
According to the 23-year-old’s representatives, the deal is one that is ‘perfect’ for his client.
Riso said: “Mission accomplished? “Not yet, there are still a few days left, a little more.
“It’s difficult to reject huge bid for the club and the player. We agreed all terms for Tonali with Newcastle and the two clubs are finalising the deal. The contract with Newcastle will be valid for the next six years.
“The boy is calm, he knows that when such important offers arrive, from such important properties, it is difficult to refuse both for the club and for the boy. We have reached an agreement on the player side, they are defining between clubs: once this is done, he will undergo medical examinations in the next few days.
“This is an excellent deal, Newcastle is the perfect project for Tonali. Newcastle wanted Sandro as a key signing at all costs. He will be a crucial player. This deal also helps AC Milan and Brescia’s finances a lot.”
Asked for the reason behind the delay, Riso said: “It’s a question of bonuses and technical details, bureaucratic things.
“It’s six-year contract I can confirm. I’m satisfied because it’s a great deal, Sandro will help Milan and Brescia too in this deal, which he loves so much.
“It’s a perfect project for him, they want him at all costs and he’ll be the point of reference. “
