Mediaset: Milan, Man Utd told to pay €50m for major midfield target

By Oliver Fisher -

A huge asking price has been set by Brescia president Massimo Cellino for Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali, a report claims.

Calciomercato.com revealed after the transfer window shut that Milan made a summer bid for Tonali, believed to be around €15-20m, that was ultimately rejected.

The same outlet claimed over the weekend 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.

The player has even previously revealed his love for Milan, revealing that then head coach Gennaro Gattuso was his childhood idol.

The Rossoneri face strong competition though, as according to the latest update from SportMediaset at least seven other clubs are interested in signing Tonali.

Napoli, Inter and Juventus are mentioned as suitors in Serie A – while they also report that Fiorentina had received a ‘yes’ in the summer from the player but Brescia shut the door on any chance of a move.

From abroad Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund, Ajax and Paris Saint-Germain are all also credited with interest.

They claim that Cellino has ‘so far resisted all offers, with a precise goal: to sell Tonali at the end of this season for €50million’.
