20-year-old Sandro Tonali of Brescia is a highly regarded midfielder throughout Europe. It comes as no surprise then that Manchester United and Inter Milan both have eyes on the tenacious engine room force.Reports suggest that Manchester United have already held talks with Brescia chiefs although their loggerheads transfer saga with Jadon Sancho could be holding up them making decisions on other signings.
Fabrizio Romano recently said that Tonali ‘will stay in Italy’ however reports today suggest Manchester United are attempting to hijack the transfer.
Corriere dello Sport claim his performances have attracted the Red Devils to make a move. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be keen on the player who has been touted as the new ‘Andrea Pirlo.’
Pirlo was humble earlier this year when the comparisons were made and even suggested Tonali could surpass him.
It’s said that he may be my heir, but I don’t see many things in common.
He is another type of player. He is much more complete both in the defensive phase and when he sets up.
He is a mix between my characteristics and those of other players.
He is the most promising of midfielders. He will surely become a great player.
Tonali’s agent is reportedly pushing the youngster to stay in Serie A and develop before making a big money move. Manchester United are crying out for squad depth and the young Italian would definitely be a welcome addition.
Inter Milan are serious in their attempts to sign the player with Fabrizio Romano tweeted than Personal Terms are agreed however the Brescia have not accepted the offer.
