Brescia and Italy sensation Sandro Tonali appeared to confirm his transfer to Serie A giants Milan via social media.
Tonali is reportedly set to undergo his Milan medical on Wednesday ahead of his €35million switch from Brescia.
The 20-year-old midfielder, compared to Italian great Andrea Pirlo, had been tipped to join city rivals Inter following his exploits for Brescia.
But Tonali – a Milan fan as a child – seemingly announced his move to the Rossoneri before any official announcement.
Tonali uploaded a picture of himself as a child, wearing a Milan shirt via Instagram, with the caption: “Blame the fairytales”.
A technically gifted midfielder renowned for his dribbling and passing abilities, Tonali scored once and registered seven assists for Brescia as they were relegated from Serie A in 2019-20.
Tonali – who ignored offers from Barcelona and Manchester United – had played a key role in Brescia’s promotion to Italy’s top tier in 2018-19.
