Chelsea Defender Heading For Stamford Bridge Exit

It would not surprise me, in the least, if during the next 48 hours it will be confirmed that Fikayo Tomori has left Stamford Bridge.

Over the last twenty-four hours, the media has been awash with the inference that the 23-year-old England international is set to, initially, join AC Milan on loan.

Over at Sky Sports the AC Milan technical director, Paulo Maldini, has admitted that a deal is close but not yet quite over the line.

Elsewhere, the Italian media source, Calciomercato is championing the suggestion the deal is done and almost dusted.

But you may have noticed that in my lead into this article, the word initially was linked with the loan move.

That is because, according to the information gathered, the loan deal is a prelude to the deal becoming permanent with a transfer fee of €30 million being mentioned.

Which begs me to ask the question – Where has it all gone so wrong for Tomori at Stamford Bridge?

The defender came to the fore while on loan at Derby County, with Frank Lampard in charge.

When Lampard took over at Chelsea, Tomori featured heavily and his progress was such, he became an England international.

This season though, he has been conspicuous by his absence, just fleeting glimpses in cup competitions.

Why?

It is a puzzle and if all goes well for Tomori, in Milan, in a couple of years we could all talk about the defender in the same way we still puzzle over why Chelsea let Mo Salah, Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku leave!

Chelsea v Luton Town?
