Inter Could Be Forced To Sell Italian Defender
Written By Jacobs Dunga
Inter Milan could be forced into selling Alessandro Bastoni this summer if an agreement is not found for a new contract.
Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni could end up leaving the club at the end of the season.
The 23 year old is on a contract that expires next summer and negotiation over a new deal is ongoing between his agent and the club.
Bastoni as reported by Gazzetta is asking for a net salary of €5.5m per annum with Inter willing to pay just around €4m with bonuses.
Bastoni is an integral part of the team’s setup and the club would not want to lose their prized asset.
However, the two parties are far from an agreement and should it happen that a middle ground is not found, Inter could be forced to sell the left footed defender to avoid a repeat of the Milan Skriniar situation.
The players agent Tullio Tinti has called for calm regarding the future of his client.
Speaking to FCInterNews about the tensions around Bastoni’s future, the Italian representative expressed his disbelief as to the unrest amongst Inter fans and assured the player’s will is to remain.

“These are the first meetings, we are talking. Surely there will be room in the coming weeks as well. He has always been an Inter fan, so… “
Can the fans be calm? Asked the press: “I don’t know why they should be agitated. You journalists put the rumors out there, neither Bastoni nor I have ever said such things. The player is an Inter fan and has great interest in staying at Inter.” He concluded.
Bastoni has been at Inter since 2017 when he was signed from Atalanta as a teenager for a fee that exceeded €30m.
