CorSport: Boost for Milan and Juventus as asking price of €50m midfield target drops

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Brescia midfield Sandro Tonali as his asking price is set to drop, a report claims.

Speculation linking the Rossoneri with a move for Tonali has intensified over the past couple of weeks, with several outlets claiming that Milan will try everything to land the 19-year-old, who is a boyhood fan of the club.

It was recently claimed that Milan have made their interest known to Tonali’s entourage and that they are expected to present both a contract offer to the player and an offer to Brescia once Elliott Management have decided on the budget available for the operation.

Juventus, Inter and Paris Saint-Germain have also been credited with interest but it was speculated that Alessandro Plizzari or Matteo Gabbia could be included as counterparts in the deal, or funds from the sale of Lucas Paqueta – valued at €30m – could be used.

According to what is being reported by il Corriere dello Sport on Tuesday (via Calciomercato.com), the Coronavirus emergency has brought Sandro Tonali’s price down.

The newspaper claims that the valuation of €50million placed upon the teenager by president Massimo Cellino will not stand in the summer, and he will therefore have to settle for lower figures.
