Super Eagles dazzling winger Samuel Chukwueze’s much-anticipated move to Milan is nearly done, as the Italian giants have successfully concluded negotiations with Villarreal and the Nigeria international has landed in Italy for his medicals on Wednesday, 25 July, 2023.
Sky Sport Italia reports that the deal is all but finalised, with only minor administrative formalities remaining to be resolved within the next few hours.
Milan are set to confirm the signing of Chukwueze soon and he will become the seventh player that Milan have signed this summer.
He will be the fifth of those seven that the club have spent a transfer fee on. The first payment will be €20m, and then there is another €8m of bonuses.
After completing his medical on Wednesday, Chukwueze will sign a five-year contract with the Serie A side, which will see him earn €4m per season.
Chukwueze’s current contract with Villarreal was due to expire at the end of the ongoing season, adding further motivation to finalise the deal swiftly.
Once all of the paperwork has been completed for Chukwueze, he will fly out to the United States of America, where he can join up with the rest of Stefano Pioli’s squad on their pre-season tour.
As excitement builds within the Milan fan base, all eyes are now on the official announcement, eagerly awaiting Chukwueze’s debut in the iconic red and black jersey.
