AC Milan are in an eight-team battle to land Brescia’s star midfielder Sandro Tonali, according to the latest reports.
We revealed back in April this year that the Rossoneri reached out to Tonali’s entourage to gauge interest over a possible move.
The player has previously revealed his love for Milan, revealing that then head coach Gennaro Gattuso is his idol during an interview with Sky Italia.
The same outlet though followed that up over the weekend by insisting that Paolo Maldini and the rest of the club’s hierarchy still want to sign the 19-year-old, with Manchester United also keeping a close eye on his.
