Chelsea release statement after deal gets announced, Man United urged to sign free agent, Campbell hints at stunning Arsenal return for midfielder in news of the day
Campbell drops Ramsey hint, Chelsea complete Tomori deal with Milan and Man United urged to sign Ramos in news of the day….
Highly-rated defender Fikayo Tomori has completed a £25 million ($34m) move to AC Milan from Chelsea
After failing to establish himself under former boss Frank Lampard, Tomori made the big decision during the January transfer window to leave the club and make a move to Seria A football.
Having impressed during his time on loan at San Siro, the Italians were desperate to make his move a permanent one this summer window, and had been in deep talks with Chelsea over a possible £25 million deal.
But now that move is all wrapped up and the highly-rated defender has agreed a four-year contract with the club, which has been announced by both Chelsea and Milan over the past few hours
“AC Milan is delighted to announce the exercising of the option for the permanent transfer of Oluwafikayomi Oluwadamilola Tomori from Chelsea,” a statement from the Serie A side reads.
“The English defender, who made 22 appearances and scored one goal over the last season, will continue to play with the Club until 30 June 2025.”
Chelsea’s official website added: “Fikayo Tomori will complete a permanent transfer from Chelsea to AC Milan on 1 July.
“The defender spent the second half of last season on loan with Milan, but will make that move permanent next month after a deal was agreed between the two clubs.”
It is a massive shame to see that Tomori is leaving Chelsea as he does have a bright future in the game, but now fans will be hoping that the club use those funds to bring in a more established centre half.
Jamie O’Hara reckons Sergio Ramos would be an ‘ideal’ signing for Manchester United this summer window.
After finishing the season in second place and failing to win that Europa League title, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will need to delve into that transfer kitty and add a bit more quality to that back-line.
The legendary defender is leaving Real Madrid this summer, the LaLiga giants announced on Wednesday after he failed to agree a new contract with the club, and that means that clubs around Europe will be free to try and get a deal done
Ramos leaves behind an incredible legacy in Madrid, the 35-year-old having won five La Liga titles, two Copas del Rey, four Supercopas de Espana, four Champions Leagues, three UEFA Super Cups and four Club World Cups.
And O’Hara believes the 35-year-old could have a similar effect to the one Thiago Silva has had at Chelsea, with the Brazilian helping the Blues triumph in the Champions League last term.
“If I’m Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, I’m doing everything in my power to get him to the football club – even if it’s for one season,” O’Hara said on this morning’s talkSPORT Breakfast.
“He is a world class centre-half, amazing player. He’s what I think they need. Yes, he’s 35, but he’s as fit as a fiddle.
“I know he had a few injuries last season but what a player to try and get to your club.
“He’s won it all and done everything. I think he could be great for Man United, I really do.”
Despite the fact he is coming towards the end of the his career, he still has a good few years left at the very top of the game
Sol Campbell has suggested Aaron Ramsey could make a shock return to Arsenal this summer transfer window.
After spending over a decade at the Emirates, Ramsey decided to leave the club just a few seasons ago and make a mega money move to Italian giants Juventus, who were very keen to offer him £350,000-a-week contract.
However, that move has not really worked out and there has been alot of speculation in the media that he could make a stunning return back to the Emirates as Juventus are reportedly ready to get rid of the player.
And amid the speculation, Arsenal legend Campbell insists the midfielder has put himself in the shop window, and has hinted that he could make a move back to the Gunners, He told talkSPORT: “Aaron Ramsey makes amazing runs. The timings are to perfection, it’s incredible. He’s got a knack of getting in there.
“You need those players who can get in there. You need those guys who can smell, ‘something’s opening up here
“Turkey were playing three at the back, so Ramsey was just waiting for that gap and [Gareth] Bale found him for the first goal. He’s very intelligent with those runs.
“He’s working hard, he’s making great runs. He’s a top, top class player. Maybe he’s in the shop window!
“He might take a little return to north London and see what’s happening at Arsenal – you never know.”
Ramsey may have a good Euro Champs, but he should not be signed by the Gunners this season and they would be making a massive mistake if they did look to get a deal done
