By Isak Möller -

It’s no secret that Sandro Tonali has attracted the interest of several big clubs in Europe. Coming off a strong season in Serie B with Brescia, he has continued on the same path in Serie A thus far. 

The midfielder has played from start in all of Brescia’s games so far, which shows how important he is for the team at the age of just 19. Subsequently, he has also become a hot target on the transfer market.

Just one day ago, Calciomercato.com reported that AC Milan are one of five teams that have concrete interest in Tonali. However, Brescia’s owner Massimo Cellino intends to spark an auction, which could raise the price tag significantly.

In an interview with the newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport this (via Calciomercato.com), Cellino revealed that all of the ‘big clubs’ in Italy want the player, while adding three foreign clubs to the mix as well.

“His agent and parents asked me about the €50m quote the other day. I told them that he’s worth €300m to me, meaning I don’t want to sell him. Who are interested? In Italy, all of the big clubs. Abroad there is Atletico Madrid, PSG and Man City,” he stated.
