Age and aptitude for playing with grit and good results are the most important challenges: these are the characteristics of Fikayo Tomori who have certainly impressed Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, the first ‘great’ of English football willing, according to rumors of the ‘Daily Mail’, to bring back the 25-year-old from across the Channel who landed in Serie A just over two years ago.

After an impeccable season finale , which coincided with the tricolor sprint of the Pioli band, Fikayo Tomori got lost and didn’t provide up to par performances, especially in terms of continuity which had been the keystone to excel in the rankings relating to tackles, successful passes and clean interventions on the ball. However, the scent of Europe awakened the concentration of the class of 1997 and teaming up with Simon Kjaer did the rest: the feared Osimhen was harnessed and the 90 minutes of the Champions League at San Paolo were perfect, except for the foul by hand on Captain Di Lorenzo’s cross; a match which, with the return against ‘Spurs’ (UEFA MVP) in London, erased from the fans’ memory the dubious penalty awarded to Chelsea in the autumn.
The English teams interested in Tomori
Are the Manchester United, which Ten Hag is struggling to recover from the dust that has characterized, for better or worse, the post Alex Ferguson, and Tottenham Hotspur orphaned by Antonio Conte and therefore in search of an equally valid technical guide, to aim the spotlights of their transfer market on the boy of Nigerian origins born in Canada. Milan, who acquired his services in the winter session ’20-’21 after an injury had canceled the Simakan option, are strong in an extended contract until June 2027 and are not willing to sit at the negotiating table, unless the offers come sounding.
Tomori’s career Weaned from Chelsea, which he gave the Youth League twice (2015-2016), Tomori failed to break through with the ‘Blues’ shirt, who turned him over on loan to Brighton, Hull City and Derby County, where he met Frank Lampard: not even his mentor’s adventure at Stemford Bridge increased his playing time and so he landed in Italy, where at the end of the season he will be close to 100 appearances for the Rossoneri. After winning the U20 World Cup in 2017 together with Atalantino Lookman, Tomori had no luck in the national team: he only wore the England shirt three times, the last against Italy in the Nations League, and the failure to call up in Qatar it could have affected the swing unraveled this year on the pitch.
