Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is continuing to try and push for Alessandro Bastoni. Alessandro Bastoni is currently in his final year of contract with Inter Milan. Furthermore Manchester City have been monitoring the player for quite some time now. According to reports Pep Guardiola have informed the Manchester City board that they should pursue Alessandro Bastoni if the player becomes available in the summer transfer window. Bastoni is an immensely talented left-footed defender on the pitch. Therefore he could replace Aymeric Laporte, who is linked with a exit from City. Aymeric Laporte wants to leave Etihad due to the reduction of game time this season. Moreover as per previous reports Bastoni could be available on the market as he has failed to agree with the new contract by Inter. Therefore this has raised City’s hopes for signing him.
Alessandro Bastoni could remain at Inter Milan
Chelsea have shown their interest in the player last month. Alessandro Bastoni would be the main part of the exchange deal involving Trevoh Chalobah. However according to recent news, the player and Inter could end up agreeing to a new contract. Alessandro Bastoni wants to make Inter Milan his priority. Furthermore they can reach to an agreement to increase his salary at Inter. However all hope is not yet lost for Manchester City as there is no official confirmation on the matter. There have been news suggesting that Inter might have to sell the player. As the club is facing huge financial crisis. Therefore increasing Bastoni’s salary will only create problems for them. However things are yet to develop further for the player. Keeping Alessandro Bastoni has also become a priority for Inter. Therefore they are going to try and offer him a good deal.
Manchester City might have to look for a replacement else where. But even if the player signs another contract with Inter, City are to keep an eye out for him. As they have been following the player for quite some time. Therefore will look to sign him when the chance arises.
