Fikayo Tomori has already decided on his next move after loan deal with AC Milan ends
Fikayo Tomori left Chelsea on loan in the January transfer window, but the question now will be whether he returns to Stamford Bridge.
The 23-year-old broke into the Blues squad under the guidance of the former head coach Frank Lampard last season, but fell in the hierarchy of central defenders after the arrival of Thiago Silva last summer.
He has made four appearances in all competitions for the Rossoneri so far, including three in Serie A as Stefano Pioli’s side find themselves in a title battle with rivals Inter Milan.
This has been the impressive start to Tomori’s life in Italy, there has been talk of a permanent transfer at the end of the season.
It was reported after the loan deal was announced that Milan have an option to buy the defender for £ 25million.
But will Tomori consider making the switch?
Well, he’s been asked about his future, whether it’s a return to Chelsea or a stay at San Siro, and it’s safe to say he doesn’t give too much to this stage.
“There wasn’t much to really think about. Once I moved to Milan, it was all about Milan,” he told the BBC. “Whatever happens to Chelsea, happens to Chelsea.”
That said, Tomori has already decided on his next move after his loan to AC Milan – and that must be included in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for this summer’s Euro 2020 tournament.
“I would be lying if I said I didn’t think about it, of course I am,” he added.
“But right now I’m taking it game by game, week by week and hopefully at the end of the season I get a Scudetto and be in the England squad.”

Interestingly, Tomori’s temporary exit at Chelsea was confirmed days before Lampard’s sacking.
And new head coach Thomas Tuchel has moved on to a third who could benefit Tomori if he decides to return to West London at the end of the season.
Moreover, the Blues’ hopes of bringing in a new central defender were dashed following the announcement of Dayot Upamecano’s transfer to Bayern Munich.
