CM: Inter in no hurry to secure deal for Brescia star but Milan continue to lurk

By Isak Möller -

Sandro Tonali has had an impressive first season in Serie A, quickly becoming the star of Brescia’s team. As a result of this, he has attracted the interest of several big teams, seemingly nearing a transfer in September. 

According to a report from Calciomercato.com, Inter are ready to move forward with the midfielder as the negotiations are ‘well underway’. However, there is no hurry to close the deal and the rumours of potential closing on Monday are false.

The Nerazzurri want to close the deal, of course, and it’s possible that a meeting will take place soon. That being said, they want to focus on their Europa League game against Getafe first. Meanwhile, Milan are watching on in the background.

Speaking to reporters before Saturday’s game against Cagliari, as cited by MilanNews.it, Pioli responded to rumours of Milan’s interest. Judging by his response, he didn’t exactly rule out a move.

“First of all I think that at Milan the talented players are always welcome, more or less young is not so relevant,” he said.

“We intend to make some signings that can improve our squad, also and above all if we manage to get into the Europa League groups. I don’t think the team needs a lot of signings, but the club are working on it and the ownership are willing to invest. From August 24th we will be even more competitive,” he stated.
