Brescia star Sandro Tonali has hinted about his transfer move to Serie A side AC Milan with revealing social media post, as per Goal.com.
The 20-year-old will reportedly undergo his medical on Wednesday before his £32 million transfer from Le Rondinelle.
The Italian footballer sparked interest from Rossoneri following his exploits for Brescia.
It looks that the midfielder has confirmed his move to San Siro before any official announcement from the club.
On his Instagram, the youngster posted a picture when he was a child, which shows him to be wearing an AC Milan shirt, and it is captioned as: “Blame the fairytales.”
Tonali, who is famous for his dribbling and passing skills, earned 35 Serie A appearances last campaign, with a goal and seven assists to his name. However, he couldn’t save his side from relegation as the Lioness finished 19th at the table last season.
The technically gifted midfielder, who reportedly turned down offers from Manchester United and Barcelona, had made a significant contribution in Le Rondinelle’s promotion to the top tier in 2018-19.
The Little Swallows’ chief Massimo Cellino revealed on Sunday that the youngster preferred the San Siro side, but he wanted the player to move to Roma due to his personal connection with La Lupa.
He said: “Sandro has supported Milan since he was a child.
“The negotiation with them made me doubly happy – I also respect a club that gives value to money.
“[Milan technical director, Paolo] Maldini has Milan DNA and has all the prerequisites for becoming a great manager.
“I would have seen Sandro more at Roma. It’s a beautiful team, a hot city. [Roma vice-president, Mauro] Baldissoni told me some time ago that he was their dream, but now I don’t know who is in charge of their transfers.
“I had an excellent relationship with [former president, Franco] Sensi and I know [former director of football, Walter] Sabatini very well.
“I feel very attached to Roma. For this reason, when I sold Cagliari, I had the dream of buying Roma and rehabilitating it, enhancing its potential through my work and my experience. It remained just a dream.”
