Right decision to send him back to Atalanta. Bastoni would turn to Ranocchia no.2 if he move straight to Inter.

With players like Issa Diop and Juan Foyth available for this price, I only hope we made the right choice. Time will tell.

Tbf it's only in the English-speaking world, especially the US, that it's a particularly offensive word. And that's because of its connotation to slavery. In Italy and the Mediterranean, not as much. Do you remember Lazio's Paulo Negro?

not many people here know what "nigga" means. and those who know are mostly among people who love rap, where the word "nigga" kind of loses its derogatory meaning (as long as it's another black person using it): i bet that's where bastoni heard the word.

so i guess bastoni didn't have bad intentions, although i would strongly suggest him not to use the word in the future.

as for paolo negro, his last name probably comes from latin (niger --> black, for whatever reason it became the last name of his forefathers).

Today, Atalanta handed a debut to yet another exciting youngster and Alessandro Bastoni did not disappoint.
Atalanta are hardly strangers to producing incredible youth players. When you think of their famous youth academy which has produced the likes of Pippo Inzaghi, Riccardo Montolivo, Luca Cigarini, Manolo Gabbiadini, Giampaolo Pazzini, Simone Zaza and Giacomo Bonaventura, it should come as no surprise when they are dubbed Italy’s talent factory. Most recently, they have produced a fresh batch of talented youngsters such as Franck Kessie, Mattia Caldara, Marco Sportiello, Andrea Conti and Filippo Melegoni among others. Today, it was Alessandro Bastoni’s turn to make a name for himself.

Born in Lombardy on April 13 1999, the centre-back played 90 minutes for Atalanta as they beat Sampdoria 1-0 in Bergamo to stay 6th and continue their great season as they push for a European place. Bastoni scored a 7.7 match rating in this game on whoscored.com and won two aerial duels, made five interceptions, and won two tackles in what was a fantastic Serie A debut.

The impressive 17-year-old also made four successful clearances, had a 78 per cent pass completion rate and perhaps most importantly, conceded zero fouls in a highly accomplished debut. Although it’s important not to overhype him yet, you can’t help but be extremely excited about what is ahead for the highly talented defender.

If he continues to impress as he did tonight, there will be no shortage of suitors for his services and Atalanta’s reputation as the nursery of Italy will continue to grow as they prove yet again that they have the best youth academy in all of Italy. #IFD

Bastoni is an interesting prospect but tbh I prefer Caldara. An Interista and proven CB at such a young age. Juve did the best to get the young def signature with 15m. I believe Caldara is the best young CB in Italy better than both Rugani and Romagnoli. On positive note, Bastoni is the one whom Caldara described 'better than me'. Maybe when Caldara join Jube next season, Bastoni will show his worth in Bergamo.
Barecca-Skriniar-Caldara-Dalbert for another CL trophy.

Inter starlet ‘inspired by Ramos’

Inter and Italy Under-18 defender Alessandro Bastoni has revealed that “I’m inspired by Sergio Ramos.”

Bastoni joined Inter over the summer from Atalanta but immediately returned to the Orobici on a two-year loan, and the Italy U18 captain did not mention any of the Azzurri’s legendary defenders when asked about his role model in football.

“I’m inspired by Sergio Ramos: he’s not a classic defender that’s big or tall, but one who likes to build up attacks and play football,” he told L’Ultimo Uomo.

“I was also lucky enough to develop in the youth sector of Atalanta, where they teach you so much from a technical point of view.

“They always taught me how to play on the deck, and that’s what I do now.

“Nowadays, midfielders with good feet are practically always marked man-to-man by the opposing team, so I think the responsibility of defenders will grow further in time.

“I don’t know whether it’s easier or more difficult now, but today there’s a lot more organisation from a tactical point of view, so it’s not just defenders that have the task of defending, but rather the whole team.

“If it then starts from the forwards, that makes for a good defensive phase and the defenders make it easier for them.

“At the same time, however, defenders participate in the build-up phase and forwards also benefit from their ‘skill’.

“Gasperini? He helped us so much. Although our training sessions weren’t particularly long, the intensity of the sessions, training matches and game concepts, which impressed us, helped me so much, also for when I’m with the national team.

“I think the difficult thing about the transition from Primavera to the first team is adapting to the intensity of the game.

“It takes you a little while to understand what Gasperini wants from you, but once you understand it and remember to stay in front of your man, it’s a style of marking that bears many fruits.

“Two defenders always focus in front [of their man], while the other one covers.

“Often when you recover the ball, you’re practically on goal and so many of our goals came from a defender winning the ball back.”

Seems like a smart guy :notbad:

He needs to start getting some minutes for Atalanta. Not much of a point on loaning for 2 years if he doesn't get any playing time.

We would have not been able to buy him at all if we didn't agree to loan him back for 2 years.
He is just a prospect at its best. 90% of the cases this kind of players gets used in future transfer deals and never wears our shirt , type of Caprari.

It was just a sunning move to rival Juves domination in italian players market so i wouldn't lose my sleep in monitoring Bastoni.
If he turns out good than great if not he will hopefully have some value in negotiation....

Ahh scouting for atalanta and inter is not the same game. Also i think only in terms of scouts it s hard to say if Atalanta really is better if you look at the results of the primavera to determine the quality of scouting then i m pretty sure we did a better job.

The problem we have is the transition to the first team and this will always be way harder at a club like inter compared to a club like Atalanta!

Also we should nto forget that determining which u18 player is more talented is extremely hard and so many factors have an influence that it is almost impossible.

Lets not forget that when CR7 and quaresma were still youth players the majority of the footballing world judged Quaresma to be the more talented player and look how different these two careers turned out.

The match against Pordenone gave Inter’s management team more indications in regards to what the squad needs. According to Premium Sport, there will be no major deals done in the January market.

Young Atalanta centre-back Bastoni who has already been purchased for 10 million euro, was originally scheduled to join Inter in the summer, however Atalanta coach Gasperini has not started the player often and Inter need cover fore the injured Vanheusden, therefore he will be brought in immediately.

Inter are still awaiting developments regarding midfield Bryan Cristante, who has been valued around 40 million euros by Atalanta who do not want to deprive themselves of player in January.

I really do believe that Gasperini has no interest in blooding him in now that he is inter bound. If you think about it, it probably doesn’t make sense for him to. Why should he risk losing games due to this kids mistake just so he’s more ready for Inter next year.

Unfortunately I think he’s coming to Inter a few years too early. He should really come when he’s Caldara’s age and has at least proven he can play in Serie a. Good luck to him becoming a top player here with our youth record.

Inter & Atalanta Continue To Negotiate Terms Of Bastoni Deal

Inter and Atalanta are continuing negotiations for the transfer of Alessandro Bastoni from Atalanta to Inter. The two clubs have already agreed a deal for the player to move to Inter in the future but Inter are looking to bring the move forward as they continue to suffer with squad numbers in defence.

Tuttosport reports that Luciano Spalletti is keen to have the player available at Appiano Gentile ahead of the Roma game on the 21st January after the Serie A winter break. The two clubs have been in discussions since December. The deal made in the summer was for €9 million plus bonuses linked to appearances for Atalanta and those potentially for Inter in the future. In theory the loan was supposed to be for two years but taking into account Gasperini’s sparse use of the player this season and Inter’s need for a player in that position, the two clubs have decided to look at the deal again and see if they can come to a solution that suits everyone.

This will ultimately mean rewriting all the previous agreements made last summer about the various bonuses linked to the deal and career of the youngster by which point Bastoni will be under the direct control of Inter.

Atalanta bought Cararro and Bettela from us for about 12mil for ffp sake. We originally bought Bastoni for 9mil and then need add some money because we cancelled loan early rumoured about 10mil and then added that Bettela and Cararro deal its about right if we spent 31mil for Bastoni transfer with 12mil back to us from Cararro and Bettela trf, so its 19-20mil net.

I am sorry chipschups but there's no excuse for this monstrosity. If Atalanta wanted 10m to let him go one season earlier, then leave Bastoni at fucking Atalanta! What was the point of that madness? It's not like we wanted him for the first team. We spent 10m for Bastoni to exchange Atalanta's bench with Parma's one.

From a quick check, Gazzetta dello Sport (not exactly reliable, like most of the sources, but still the authority regarding fantacalcio/fantasy football, after all) gave him a 6.5 rating: “personality of a veteran in his first start, a young player to keep an eye on” (helped by the experience of Bruno Alves).

A 7 from both Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport (“For the first time as a CB in the season. Very good, especially in the aerial game").

Yeah because Atalanta dumb enough to pay Bettela and carraro for 12m before 30th june helping us dodge ffp.

June 17 - We sign bastoni 10m loan him for 2 year there
June 18 - Atalanta bought bettela and Cararro for 12m
July 18 - we ended loan spell thus we got penalty and pay 10m more
Aug 18 - Bastoni figure turn out to be 32m

10m + 10m ended loan + 12m for them buy our player

According to GdS, Inter have informed Parma that Bastoni isn't going to stay at Parma next season as Inter intend to keep him in the squad. If we intend to give him Ranocchia's role this would be a mistake. Regular playing time would be more beneficial for Bastoni that rotting on our bench. And the same goes for Gravillon and Vanheusden.

23 Jan 19, 11:11
We need Gravillon for club-trained quota. As for Bastoni, yeah, it's pretty strange, with Miranda and Ranocchia gone and Godin in, Bastoni will still only play at Coppa Italia (in before Skriniar gets sold for 100m EUR by Marotta of course).

CafeCordoba
23 Jan 19, 11:48
He should be loaned again. I don't see any reason not to loan to Parma since he's a starter there already. 90 mins week in week out, why the fuck not?

Gravillon is a good candidate for 4th CB, like said. He's club-trained so we don't need to use some Primavera kid for that quota.

Gravillon is also an undisputed starter at Pescara, and hasn't missed a single minute this season, even in Coppa. If Pescara promotes this year (they are 2 points behind 2nd atm), Gravillon shouldn't be our 4th CB either. Imo we should buy a great (and healthy) RB for Vrsaljko and Dumbo could be our 4th CB.

I mean if we struggle for ffp this season I think de vrij will leave, he'd be a 30-40 million transfer of pure profit.

I thought bastoni was great yesterday for what I expected, a real talented player who could fit in our squad in a couple years

I'm having a same thought. That we can cash in with De Vrij at some point. Might be later summers too, because despite being off SA, FFP will be there still. Tens of millions of net capital when selling De Vrij for 40m€ is tremendous. Though maybe he's more suited to La Liga than EPL (which is for Skriniar but he's untouchable).

Does matter the capital gain after we are out of this SA shit?
From what I read FFP it's all about balancing the book, over 3 years we need to have max 30m loss. It doesn't matter if it's expenditure or capital

No need to rush Bastoni back. Godin, De Vrij and Skriniar are a solid group of CB's. Bastoni can spend another year or 2 in Parma on loan if need be.

Agreed. Would like to see him play longer, however our "starters" on defense still need so much work , do not expect more time. If Inter do play another preseason match expect the purported starting eleven to play at 60min together. Again Bastoni will come on as the "dependable " sub.

i agree, and after 5 weeks even more so. of course, skriniar can adapt to playing on the left, but conte wants the team to build the game from the defence, and places a right-footed guy on the left?

i very strongly feel he should give bastoni a chance, or better yet 2-3.

i think we should try the bastoni-godin-skriniar trio.

Assuming everything goes right with his development anyway, but he looked like a seasoned Serie A defender yesterday.

Very good debut by Bastoni, with due (Samp-related) proportion.

He was given the first opportunity to show what he's got and we were expecting from him (composure, personality, the fact that he's able to play and build from the back with his left foot, but also that he's comfortable when the team is sitting deep and defending like in the second half, similarly to his first Serie A season with Parma) and he definitely took it.

On to the next.

Grande talent. Conte said he rejected a ton of approaches from Serie A teams for a loan. He's got the best tutors here in De Vrij, Skriniar and Godin.

Last weekend, Antonio Conte was not afraid to start the very young Alessandro Bastoni against Sampdoria. And the same player also had no fear as he was one of the match’s protagonists and had a fantastic performance. Enough for the Gazzetta dello Sport to give him a 7 rating for the great performance.

“Consistency, advancing forward with one through ball for Lautaro and almost scoring a header,” said the Milanese newspaper. This Bastoni, according to the pink paper, “can subvert the hierarchies” at the club. The 1999-born center back has in front of him a huge mountain to climb, considering that the three starters (excluding Danilo D’Ambrosio) are the three sacred monsters in Diego Godin, Stefan De Vrij and Milan Skriniar.

But certainly, beyond the prediction of the Gazzetta, Alessandro Bastoni has a great future ahead of him both in the national team and of course here at Inter. Years ago, Inter paid €31M to sign him from Atalanta and last summer, Inter rejected half of Serie A just because of Conte’s wishes to keep him.

Conte spoke of 20-year-old defender Alessandro Bastoni who made his debut for the Nerazzurri:
“Half of the Serie A wanted him and I was against letting him go. I want to work with him, I’ve seen his potential not only physically, but also mentally. He does what you ask him to do right away. Alessandro will certainly be useful in the future, but he’s also useful right now.”

“He’s an important option to have and again I repeat, I’m taking risks, last match with Biraghi, and today with Bastoni. But I have faith in them, I have no problem putting them out on the pitch. Their team-mates also have faith in them. We continue like we have so far, with humility and a great desire.”

I4E
30 Sep 19, 09:19
Hold up. We paid €31m for Bastoni as a 17-18 year old inexperienced & unproven at senior level ???

Holy shit that's massive ! Is it a typo ? Is it supposed to be €3.1m ??? Whoever did this deal must've had some amazing foresite and incredible negotiation skills to convince the hierarchy to spend that much.

.h.

the number is correct

i think it was like 13mil actual cash, but there was a bunch of linked transfers - Eugelfi, that CB? For the plusvalenza

I4E
30 Sep 19, 09:27
So it wasn't really €31m. It was €13m plus a players 'value' that brought it to that figure.

Even €13m is insane for a teenage defender that never played a Serie A game.

.h.
30 Sep 19, 09:40
yeah, but for accounting reasons it is 31m - so what we amortise, for example

but yeah, fundamentally it wasnt that level of transaction.

it's still high for a teenager who hasnt played much Serie A, but at the same time, our scouts must be on to something - look at his transfermarkt valuation soar while he was at Parma.

It was one of the suspect plusvalenza transactions, deals where numbers are inflated and there are transactions both ways to improve each others plusvalenza.

Over 2 seasons, Inter sold Eguelfi, Bettella and Carraro to Atalanta for 18m, and bought Bastoni for 31m. So only €13m changed hands, and both clubs made good plusvalenza. But still, while the numbers were inflated both ways, it was a canny bit of scouting. I had earlier thought that Inter got duped as usual (specially when Atalanta didn't play Bastoni after the deal), but looks like someone at Inter deserves kudos for this.

30 Sep 19, 10:29
And what is best in this situation? I think we have a pretty good chance not to fuck up this kid with too high expectations. We have the three-headed monster ahead of him in the pecking order. So basically he isn't demanded to perform week in week out. He can learn from these experienced and/or talented CBs and once in a while he's given a chance, he can prove his worth. Not exactly the same age, but Ranocchia case reminds me a bit of young CB brought into the club and he's thrown to the wolves immediately. Not going to happen now.

ideally, DDA should have dropped back to the back 3 and we should have been able to bring on Lazaro (but he's not ready) or Candreva. It wasn't a good situation to throw Bastoni into. Still think he looked relatively composed despite making a mistake on the second goal. I think the rate of his development will surprise some people.

Choppin Onions
07 Oct 19, 06:13
I thought he looked the most composed out of the CD's barring maybe de Vrij who's been mostly outstanding so far this season. Unfortunate on the goal but facing champions like Ronaldo and yes even Higuain isn't easy for any defender much less a 20 year old. His future is bright.

dax21
07 Oct 19, 07:59
This guy should slowly be integrated as a starting LCB. Keep DeVrij in the middle and alternate Skriniar and Godin as RCBs or use Skriniar as DM if he can pull it off. Bastoni is far more offensive than Skriniar and isn't afraid to nudge the ball forward.

As far as Skriniar goes, this garbage idea of using him as a LCB is fucking with him big time, when he was switched to the right last night he kept using his left foot for passing towards the right touchline.

Bluenine
07 Oct 19, 19:11
I think some people are being too harsh on the kid. He had one or two moments of weakness against a quality & relentless attack, so its easy to overlook his overall performance. I too was a bit surprised by Conte's decision of Bastoni instead of Dumbo/Rano to replace Godin, but the way Bastoni played I can see why Conte made that call. It was a good call.

I was so impressed with Bastoni's overall performance considering the situation and pressure. For a kid, he looked especially calm and composed with the ball at his feet, and his decision making was generally spot on. This kid is gifted, and IMO he had a better game than Godin who was getting beat for pace (which was always a risk against CR7 & Sandro considering Godin's age). Not only do I think Bastoni is already a better RCB than Ranocchia, now I think he will be ready for a starting role within a year instead of 2-3.

Will be a fucking boss. I was there and followed him closely. His movement off the ball and anticipation is great, his calmness as well. Was better than all of our 3 other CBs since he came on. Yeah he lost Piguain for the goal, but it happens, he is young and was thrown in fire for experienced Godin.

Needs to play more and more. I'd give him few starts in the next games, and try Bastoni - Godin/De Vrij - Skriniar trio.

That's a good thing for Conte and the team though. There is nothing worse than not having options and having to play the same players regardless of their form. All you have to do is look at last season to see how that went with the likes of Valero, Vecino, Perisic and Naingollan getting regular playing time despite playing well below expectations.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when did he screw up in this game? Berardi goal was more on Biraghi, the other two don't seem like Bastoni's fault to me.

My only issue with him is his ability to pass the ball; numerous balls he played forward were misguided, either slowing us down or giving the ball to Sassuolo. Essentially it makes sense to press other players when he's on the ball. I do like him though in other aspects. I'm totally satisfied with playing him when Godin is rested/unavailable.

Of course, but I was talking about Skriniar being weak on the ball..About adjusting,attackers are covering Skriniar more then other Inters defenders so de Vrij often have to pass to other guy then Skriniar..When attacking they dont go through Skriniar 99% of the time..Other teams just disconnected Skriniar from the game..But when he got an action he still play more then decent even if he play every match on different position..Yet people call him trash???And being weak on the ball??What the hell?Hopefully he will transfer to another club soon..
Its the same with Lukaku,other teams have to cover him with 2-3players so Lautaro got a free space and he can feel like a king of Serie A..Now people blame Lukaku?Lautaro is shit without Lukaku next to him..Inters defense is shit without Skriniar,you will realize when Skriniar leave..

His positioning concerns me but I think he still has good time to learn. I believe part of bad positioning is because he is nervous to play first games for Inter shirt.

Wait the minute!Did you just said,this young Bastoni boy is better than Skriniar on the ball?You mean this Skriniar?

https://youtu.be/keZ5Z-dGI0E?t=334

Make you a favour and watch whole game Slovakia vs England..Skriniar was playing DM and he was dominating everyone on the pitch with ball or without..Skriniar under Conte is playing at 30% of his potential because of his role in team.Conte made Skriniar looks like he is at the same level as Bastoni for some..

People like you are why we have the “falcao law” on this forum. Saying Bastoni is better on the ball is not an attack against Skriniar. I still think he’s a better overall player. However especially if we’re talking about the LCB position Bastoni is just more comfortable passing out from there. He’s not the athlete or defender Skriniar is and if you asked him to play out of position like Skriniar has so far this year he would look a lot worse than Skriniar has imo. Skriniar has actually in a way been punished for being our best and most versatile defender.

You can tell he has good passing technique, but for whatever reason he was awful at distributing today. However, you could see the wrong game of Bonucci and say he is a bad passer of the ball, but that wouldn't really be true

Fuckn ask Spalletti who sold the myth that Ranocchia is a vital contributor to the team as a result of what he does behind the scenes. Absolute bullshit and a waste of money if you ask me. Perhaps that is being harsh on him and perhaps I undervalue what he does because i simply cannot see it. But the last time I checked, footballers get paid for playing and what they do on the pitch not for what they contribute behind the scenes.

Not a great performance, but this is what happens to young players. Growing pains are allowed if they don't cost you matches. We need to keep giving him minutes after this performance to show him that we believe in him. Otherwise, he'll just turn into another youth player whose career we botched.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when did he screw up in this game? Berardi goal was more on Biraghi, the other two don't seem like Bastoni's fault to me.

My only issue with him is his ability to pass the ball; numerous balls he played forward were misguided, either slowing us down or giving the ball to Sassuolo. Essentially it makes sense to press other players when he's on the ball. I do like him though in other aspects. I'm totally satisfied with playing him when Godin is rested/unavailable.

look at their third goal

Fabrizio Romano:


Bastoni: Inter’s leader in defence for the future

Alessandro Bastoni has convinced completely the Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan’s management with another star performance, this time in the game against Parma Calcio 1913.

The 20-year-old was started in the defensive line for the Milan-based club this season and he has surprised everyone with his game awareness and defensive capability.

Yes he is not a finished article by any means, but Bastoni has shown not only defensive qualities but also leadership qualities which can be beneficial for the club in the near future.

It is just normal that manager Antonio Conte is extremely impressed with the performance of Bastoni and is willing to give him space as well as confidence to keep producing the goods.

The former Chelsea manager has already heaped praise on the player and termed him as an asset for the club in the years to come.

There were other clubs who were eager to take the Italy U21 international on loan but it seems highly unlikely that Inter will let that happen.

In fact, the Nerazzurri’s leadership is focused towards extending Bastoni’s current contract which is set to expire in the summer of 2023.

It will be a deserving a new contract for the player but Inter is in no hurry to do that, however, it is something on the club’s agenda of the near future.

He's the real deal I think. Hardly ever looks out of place, and has a cultured left foot for a CB. He could be a pillar of the defense for years if he develops as he is.

He is in the right path, and Conte so far is doing well managing him. What I like about him more is his composure with the ball, and is actually a good passer. For a defender in such a young age it’s impressive.

His passing to Lazaro for second goal was Xabi Alonso-esque and his run from the back to nearly scored a goal was something the 80 M Dutch defender typically did. His defensive capability still needs to be tested and honed as we should remember that Higuain scored because Bastoni mismarked him. However, Bastoni-De Vrij-Skrniar should be our primary set up because I don't think Godin performs better than him so far.

FCIN: Negotiation to renew Alessandro Bastoni’s contract is ongoing. The idea of Inter is to give the young defender a new contract until 2024, increasing his wages from just 300 thousand to around €1.2M. This is the recognition of how he has contributed to the team so far this season: despite names like De Vrij, Skriniar, Godin and D’Ambrosio, Bastoni has managed to start a few times under the guidance of coach Antonio Conte.

Yesterday’s afternoon, his representatives were in Inter HQ in Viale Della Liberazione to get things rolling on this new contract. There is already an agreement and both sides are working on the final details of this new deal. Bastoni is an important element for this Inter team and will be a pillar in its defense in the near future.

Chiesa played as RWB in a 3-5-2 today (and most likely vs us too). It is too risky to let Bastoni handle their most dangerous player.

I'd rather rest Godin and use Dumbo as RCB.

Im more and more impressed by this guy. Even when he makes mistake, he simply picks it up and continues, without hitting his motivation and confidence. Something none of our previous young defenders (bar Skriniar) did that (Rano, Juan, Murillo.. All played well until one fuckup).

I'd play him as a starter at LCB. No other defender we have is better at that position.
