Ruben Loftus-Cheek Set for AC Milan Move

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is on the verge of completing a transfer to Italian giants AC Milan, with both clubs agreeing on a fee of around £15 million plus add-ons. The 27-year-old has also agreed to personal terms on what is expected to be a four-year deal.

Loftus-Cheek, who has made 155 first-team appearances for Chelsea, is “very excited” about joining Milan. The transfer could be worth as much as €20 million (£17 million) in total, with an initial fee of €16 million and €4 million in add-ons.

AC Milan is keen to sign Loftus-Cheek as a replacement for Italy international Sandro Tonali, who is set to join Newcastle for £65 million. The English midfielder will join his former Chelsea teammates Olivier Giroud and Fikayo Tomori at the San Siro.

Loftus-Cheek made his Chelsea debut in 2014, but his breakthrough as a Premier League player came on loan at Crystal Palace during the 2017-18 campaign.

The England international excelled at Selhurst Park before returning to Chelsea the following season, registering his best-ever scoring season with 10 goals in all competitions.

However, a ruptured Achilles during a friendly match against New England Revolution in July 2019 kept him out for almost a year.

The move to AC Milan will provide Loftus-Cheek with a new challenge and an opportunity to reignite his career in Serie A.
