Inter begin contract talk with Alessandro Bastoni amid interest from Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. The Nerazzurri have already offered a new contract to the Italian defender, which will run untill June 2027. His current contract will expire in the summer of 2024, but Inter do not want to wait for long. The Nerazzurri consider Bastoni a key player and have given an improved deal with €4.5 million per season in wages.
Manchester City is eyeing the Italian defender, as they are looking for a talented young defender. The Premier League giants brought Inter target Akanji in the summer. But they are looking for another defender with potential for the future. They will be willing to offer a lucrative deal to Bastoni, who might get tempted to play in a big club like City. However, the Italian defender is an Inter fan, and he refused many offers this summer to stay at Inter.
Inter begin contract talk with Bastoni as City and Spurs show interest
Conte was keen to bring Bastoni in the summer, but the defender rejected his proposal. The former Inter manager is still keeping an eye on Bastoni and will move for him if he becomes available on the market. He has been searching for a defender, who can operate on the left side of the back three. However, Inter are one step ahead and have already contacted Bastoni’s agents Tullio Tinti, Paolo Castellini, and Manuel Montipò.
Bastoni has improved a lot since he joined Inter in 2017 from Atalanta. The Italian defender is now the first-choice defender for his nation. Moreover, he has won several trophies with Inter, including Scudetto. Conte trusted him to be a regular starter in the lineup, and Bastoni repaid that faith. Under Inzaghi, Bastoni has improved his offensive side of the game. So the Italian defender would like to continue and improve more at Inter.
