Brescia set asking price of over €300m for Man Utd midfield target
Brescia president Massimo Cellino has stated that he would not even sell prized midfield asset Sandro Tonali for €300million.
Calciomercato.com had reported back in September that AC Milan made a summer bid for Tonali – said to have been in the region of €15-20m – that was deemed insufficient, while the same outlet then stated not long after that the San Siro outfit have not given up on the idea of signing him.
The 19-year-old Italy international has previously revealed his love for the Rossoneri, revealing that former head coach Gennaro Gattuso was his idol growing up.
FcInterNews.it claimed in the past that Cellino is ready to conduct an auction next summer with the starting price at €35m, with Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund also interested – as well as four other Serie A clubs.
However, according to SempreMilan, via Calciomercato.com, Cellino has set the asking price a lot higher than that figure.
The outlet claims that he told reporters: “Fifty million euros for Tonali? At the moment I wouldn’t sell him even for 300 million.”
