Chukwueze Undergoes Medicals At AC Milan As He Nears Dream Move

Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze has undergone medicals with Italian giant, AC Milan.
This is as the Villarreal and the Nigeria international landed in Italy on Wednesday.
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.

Villarreal Place €80 Million Price Tag On Chukwueze

A price tag of €80 million has been placed on Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze by his club Villarreal ahead of this summer transfer window.
This is as Spanish La Liga giants, Real Madrid have shown interest in Chukwueze and are aiming to bring him to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The 23-year-old’s performance this season has delighted Florentino Pérez, president of Los Blancos.
Last Saturday, Chukwueze put on a masterful performance at the Bernabeu, handing the Spanish powerhouses their fifth loss of the season while scoring twice and helping to set up the third in a 3-2 thriller.
The Super Eagles winger is so crucial to Villarreal’s success that he has started the team’s last 20 games and is now their most effective player in Gerard Moreno’s absence, whose season has been marred by injuries.
This season, the 23-year-old has scored 11 goals and provided 13 assists in all competitions. He is one of only five Spanish top-flight players to have double-digit goals and assists since 2022.
The Nigerian has improved so well under coach Quique Setién this season that he could move to Real Madrid this summer if they agree to pay Villarreal’s asking price.
Villarreal reportedly informed Real Madrid and other interested clubs to meet Chukwueze’s €80 million release clause according to Spanish transfer market website Fichajes.
The website wrote, “From Villarreal, they have wanted to be blunt with the starting price of Chukwueze, clinging to the player’s termination clause, which amounts to no more and no less than €80m, which means that any team interested in signing him will have to pay that amount to secure his services, including a Real Madrid that has not yet made a formal offer”.
