Inter already have an option to sign young Italian sensation Alessandro Bastoni.
Our newsdesk confirms that the Nerazzurri’s director of sport, Piero Ausilio, has picked up where he left off in January with Roberto Gagliardini, meeting with Atalanta’s directors and agent Tullio Tinti.
He’s come away from it with an agreement, an option over the 17-year-old, who has already played 119 minutes of Serie A this season, but has scored 5 goals for the Primavera (via transfermarkt).
Inter have agreed to leave Bastoni in Bergamo for another year. The idea of new owners Suning is that the Nerazzurri are to recruit young, and Italian wherever possible.
The left-footed defender will do a Caldara basically, staying on the Dea’s books for the time being, but being sent to Inter when he is deemed ready.
The Nerazzurri had signed fellow youngster Gagliardini after he’d made less than ten Serie A appearances this season.
The Gazzetta reported a few days ago that Bastoni would be worth €10-15 million, with further bonuses down the line.
i have to admit i don't know anything about this guy. but if he's any good, it would be nice to have a young and promising CB here under samuel's wings.
My username has nothing to do with the player of loserpool fc, it is just a reference to an Italian novel.
JJM what happend with Hector guy from Germany?
According to La Nazione, there's an agreement between Gonzalo Rodriguez and Inter for a 2 year deal with an option for a third. I thought we were done getting 30+ years old players. If the report is accurate Murillo is gone in the summer.
That sounds like a Campagnaro 2.0 tbh
FWIW, I haven't read a single link in which someone at Inter has mentioned any remote interest in Rodriguez. I constantly hear his agent talking about interest from multiple clubs, including Inter. I would put money that the market for him in Serie A is quite dry, and the agent is trying to leverage a higher salary.
If there is any old defender need get a contract, its Miranda. Doesnt make sense when inter even considering to not extend Miranda contract because want younger player but there is news they chasing one leg rodriguez, so its bullshit.
I really like Rodrigo Caio. He is one of the most promising Brazilian defenders and he has an Italian passport. Too bad he just signed a contract extension. But even with that, I think he shouldn't cost more than 20 million.
I think Inter should at least keep him as an alternative.
I always thought Rodrigo Caio was overrated and prone to leaving too much space, not positioning himself right. Truth be told, haven't seen him in a while, so maybe he developed and didn't send me a postcard to keep me updated.
That kid was supposed to be in Europe like 2 years ago but he couldn't pass any medicals. He has knee issues
