Chelsea loanee, Fikayo Tomori breaks Cristiano Ronaldo’s Serie A record
Chelsea loanee, Fikayo Tomori has set a new Serie A record for himself after he scored for AC Milan in their 3 – 0 victory against Juventus at the weekend.
The 23-year-old jumped a staggering eight feet and seven inches inside the Allianz Stadium to surpass Ronaldo‘s record, set last season against Sampdoria.

Ronaldo achieved the ‘greatest leap’ crown when he soared up to 8ft 5inches against Sampdoria at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium in 2019-20.

Tomori’s goal against Juventus also saw him become the first Englishman since David Beckham to score for the Rossoneri.
AC Milan wants to sign Tomori on a permanent deal after an impressive loan spell since arriving in January from Chelsea. He has an option in his current deal to sign permanently at the San Siro for £25million and boss Pioli is keen to take up the offer.
Pioli said: “We want to buy Tomori on a permanent deal from Chelsea. Our intention is clear and also Fikayo’s decision (staying at Milan).
“We’ll see what happens at the end of the season.”
