Bastoni agent opens door to Tottenham: ‘He loves Inter, but…’

Alessandro Bastoni’s agent reiterates the defender is more than happy to stay at Inter, but the Tottenham Hotspur transfer target ‘is also a professional and has to adjust’ to the market.

There are growing reports that while the centre-back has no intention of leaving San Siro, there is the possibility Inter will bow down to pressure from their former coach Antonio Conte if the offer is too high to resist.

Comments from his agent to Sportitalia this evening do suggest there might be truth to that framing of the transfer story.

“He is certainly a big fan of the team he plays for, so he will happily remain at Inter,” Tullio Tinti told Sportitalia television channel in Italy.

“However, he is also a professional. This is football and he has to adjust. It’s clear he is very happy to play for Inter and feels this jersey like a tattoo on his skin.”

The 23-year-old is expected to start for Italy in tomorrow night’s opening Nations League match against Germany, which will be his 13th senior cap for the Azzurri.

Inter purchased him from Atalanta in 2017 for €31m, although he remained on loan in Bergamo for one season, then had another experience at Parma, finally reaching the Nerazzurri in June 2019.

This season he played 44 competitive matches for the club, scoring one goal and providing three assists.

Bastoni was one of the key figures in the Scudetto victory last season under Conte, who now wants a reunion at Tottenham Hotspur.

  1. Can this site get anymore obsessed with Spurs? lol

    They’re basically mentioned every day, often several times.

  2. It’s not Spurs this site is obsessed with, it’s Conte!! Everywhere he goes the news just follows him!

  3. @Jay & @Ferban – it’s ‘Football Italia’ & both Antonio Conte & Allesandro Bastoni are Italian & this is seemingly one of the hot topics of this transfer window involving Inter Milan, an Italian club!

  4. Bastonis Agent: It’s clear he is very happy to play for Inter and feels this jersey like a tattoo on his skin.”

    F-I: Logic…

  5. That’s the problem with Spurs. The fans are so used to lack of success that you can’t mention Spurs without the fans thinking you’re taking the mick and getting all Spursy.

    Come On You Bottlers.

  6. Bastoni should know Conte is NEVER a long term coach. He might leave Inter but Tottenham is not a progress in his career. He has interests from Man City which offer way better development. If Tottenham are the option then staying at Inter is much better.

  7. Solointer.. man city are a fake oil club everything that is wrong with modern football. Spurs have always been bigger than them and will get further than inter in the champions league to

  8. As Roma should sign Bastoni. So he can create a partnership with Mancini through Serie A game time. Which will then hopefully reflect on the national team play. There will be a better understanding.
