AC Milan made an offer for Brescia midfield starlet Sandro Tonali but he will not leave this summer, according to a report.
Tonali has become one of the hottest properties in Italian football since his breakthrough at Brescia last season, in which he amassed a combined seven goals and assists in Serie B to help his side earn promotion back to the top flight.
We reported back in April that the Rossoneri had reached out to the teenager’s entourage to try and gauge whether a deal in the summer transfer window would be possible.
Now, Calciomercato.com have revealed that Milan did in fact launch a summer bid for Tonali, believed to be around €15-20m plus the option of loaning him back to Brescia for a season.
However, club president Massimo Cellino rejected all offers (with a similar bid arriving from Juventus), the report claims, as he feels that Tonali could be a €40-50m player next summer.
The report concludes by stating that Brescia – who face Milan on Saturday at San Siro – will only consider selling next summer, when the Rossoneri will likely still be interested.
