Sandro Tonali is officially a Newcastle United player. The Premier League had struck a deal with Milan a while back but had to wait to finalize it due to the ongoing U-21 Euro. The Azzurrini, whom the midfielder was captaining, were eliminated abruptly in the group stage.
The Brescia youth product leaves the Rossoneri after three seasons, where he appeared 130 times and scored 7 goals. He was a key contributor to the Scudetto in 2021/2022. The Magpies paid €70M plus add-ons to lure him away.
Tonali bid farewell to the fans on Instagram following the Newcastle transfer.
“I find myself today carrying mixed emotions in my heart. As you know, I have decided to start a new adventure and challenge. I wish to begin by thanking the team that welcomed me and gave me the chance to be part of this extraordinary club, my childhood one, that will always be home to me. I’ve learned a lot in these last three years and found a football family in the front office, my teammates, and the coaching staff, which always supported and guided me in my journey. I improved as a man and player thanks to them.”
“This farewell can generate clashing sentiments, and it’s normal, but it’s important to know that changes can be an opportunity for growth for everybody. I want to thank my people and the fans and wish you the best for the future. I hope this is goodbye and not farewell.”
