Man United target Alessandro Bastoni for the summer transfer window, as they want to improve their backline. The Nerazzurri are looking to renew the Italian defender’s contract soon, as his current one expires in 2024. They want to tie him down to a long contract, as he is essential for their future plans. He is a key figure in Inter Milan’s back three, but he has interest from other big clubs that will make a move for him in the summer. Ten Hag wants to improve his defensive options as he has limited quality center backs.
After the departure of Skriniar, Bastoni will be the face of Inter Milan’s defense. Hence, Inter are eager to extend his contract, as they can not afford to lose him. De Vrij will also most likely leave in the summer. Inter have offered him a contract, but the Dutch defender wants to move to another club. While, Skriniar will join Paris Saint Germain in the summer. So Inter have to keep Bastoni, to keep their defense stable.
Man United target Bastoni while Inter prepare his new contract
Bastoni and Inter have been in talks over the new contract, however, the club are not willing to meet his wage demands. While Manchester United will offer him a lucrative deal, and the Italian defender will get Premier League exposure. Bastoni wants £4.4 million in wages per season, but Inter are not willing to accept his demands. However, it will be hard for Inter to replace their whole backline next season, if Bastoni decides to move.
Erik Ten Hag wants some more quality options in defense other than Varane and Lisandro Martinez. The Red Devils have been on the rise this season, and have improved drastically. They are still in the Premier League race, but the Dutch manager will need some more reinforcements in the summer to take the club to next level.
