Massimo Cellino names his price for Man Utd, Milan target
Brescia president Massimo Cellino has reportedly set a huge asking price for midfielder Sandro Tonali, amid interest from Manchester United and AC Milan.
Calciomercato.com revealed after the summer transfer window shut that Milan made a bid for Tonali, believed to be around €15-20m, that was ultimately rejected.
The same outlet claimed over the weekend that Paolo Maldini and the rest of the Milan’s hierarchy still want to sign the 19-year-old, with United also keeping a close eye the player’s situation.
Tonali has previously revealed his love for Milan, revealing that then head coach Gennaro Gattuso was his childhood idol growing up.
The Rossoneri face strong competition for the youngster, however, with SportMediaset stating that at least seven other clubs are interested in signing Tonali.
Napoli, Inter and Juventus are mentioned as suitors in Serie A, while they also report that Fiorentina had received a ‘yes’ in the summer from the player – only for Brescia to shut the door on any chance of a move.
As for clubs outside of Italy, United, Borussia Dortmund, Ajax and Paris Saint-Germain are all also credited with an interest, as per SempreMilan.
But the report claims that Cellino has so far resisted all offers and will not part company with Tonali for less than €50million.
