Inter risk losing Alessandro Bastoni in the summer transfer market if a new deal is not agreed with the defender, reports Gazzetta dello Sport in the newspaper’s printed edition.
Alessandro Bastoni and Inter are negotiating a new contract in the last few months. However, there is still a significant distance between the player’s demand and the club’s proposal. Inter risk losing Alessandro Bastoni who wants to earn around €5.5 million per season, while Inter’s offer is around €4 million plus bonuses. The player currently earns €3.5 million per season. The current contract of the player expires in the summer of 2024.
The report suggests that if the parties don’t close the renewal before the end of the season, Inter risk losing Alessandro Bastoni. Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester City are following closely the situation. Inter want to avoid at all cost a situation similar to the one with Milan Skriniar.
Scalvini will be the top priority to replace Bastoni in case the defender is sold in the summer.
The report continues to discuss a possible future without Alessandro Bastoni. Atalanta defender Giorgio Scalvini is the chosen one from Inter’s board. According to his club, the 19-year-old is worth around €40 million. This prize is considered too high for the Nerrazzurri, so Inter will try to add a player to the negotiations. The club from the Bergamo is following Inter’s Giovanni Fabbian who is currently playing on loan for Reggina.
Regarding the possible replacement of Milan Skriniar, Inter will once again look to Bergamo. Atalanta defender Merih Demiral is considered the perfect candidate. The Nerrazzurri already approached the Turkish international in the winter. It is reported that the player is open to joining the club. However, back in January Atalanta weren’t keen on accepting the loan formula, proposed by Inter.
