Tottenham goal Bastoni’s agent speaks out
Alessandro Bastoni has confirmed his client is completely happy at Inter Milan amid strong interest from Tottenham.
The Italian is Spurs’ top defensive goal but is leaning towards staying with Inter.
“He’s definitely an enormous fan of the team he plays for, so he’ll happily remain at Inter,” Tullio Tinti told Sportitalia.
“Nonetheless, he can be an expert. That is football and he has to regulate. It’s clear he could be very completely happy to play for Inter and feels this jersey like a tattoo on his skin.”
Manchester United table Nunez swap bid
Manchester United have reportedly opened the bidding for Erik ten Hag’s top striker goal Darwin Nunez.
Yet it was not only any offer as in keeping with Correio da Manha the Red Devils have submitted a player-plus-cash proposal involving Andreas Pereira.
The Brazilian spent last season on loan at Flamengo and sensationally, he recently caught the attention of United’s own scouts, sparking optimism he could still have a future on the club.
Now United are prepared offer him to Benfica as a part of their attempts to secure the services of Nunez.
It’s unclear whether Benfica are willing to think about swap deal offers for Nunez, who they value at £67m after he hit 34 goals in all competitions last season.
