Fikayo Tomori managed to break Cristiano Ronaldo's Serie A jump record with his header during AC Milan 3-0 Juventus.

It has since emerged that Tomori's leap, which left Giorgio Chiellini & Matthijs de Ligt grounded, was a height of 2.63m (roughly 8.6 feet).



Tomori has become the first Englishman to score for Milan since David Beckham over a decade ago and he's enjoying himself in Italy.

Despite being used regularly by Frank Lampard last season, the 23-year-old fell down the pecking order after Thiago Silva's arrival in the summer.

Limited game time saw him jump to the Rossoneri, for who he has made 14 Serie A appearances.

A clause in his loan deal means the Italian outfit can sign him for around £23 million this summer, with manager Stefano Pioli keen.

He told reporters per Daily Mail: "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."

Meanwhile, legendary defender Franco Baresi said back in March: "We will do everything possible to sign him on a permanent deal.

"Tomori is imposing himself with talent and determination.

"He has shown no fear playing in a new league. He can potentially become a great champion. I hope he lives up to expectations."

Brahim Diaz and Ante Rebic also got on the scoresheet at the Allianz Stadium to put massive pressure on Juve.

That'd bring serious doubts over the future of Ronaldo, who wouldn't take kindly to spending his twilight years in the Europa League.
