Man United now interested in beating Spurs to the signing of €60m-rated Star

Published

on

Manchester United have joined Tottenham Hotspur in the pursuit of Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni, reputed journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

Bastoni is widely regarded as one of the best central defenders in Serie A, but he could be on the move this summer amid the Nerazzurri’s financial concerns.

Spurs are said have already initiated contact with Inter and Bastoni, but United have moved in ‘the last hours’ and could offer stiff competition in the pursuit.

Bastoni made his first-team debut for the Nerazzurri during the 2019/2020 campaign, and has since amassed 118 appearances across all competitions for the club.

The Italian has impressed with his all-round defensive work. Last season, he registered an average of 1.4 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 1.8 clearances per league game.

However, his main strength has been his quality distribution. The former Atalanta graduate completed over 50 passes on average with a 89.6 per cent success rate.

This is an attribute that would suit United and manager Erik ten Hag. The Dutch tactician likes to work with ball-carrying defenders, who can play out from the back.

It has been previously claimed that Inter would want at least €60 million to sanction his departure, and it remains to be seen whether United are willing pay that.

United’s main competition will be Spurs with Conte having managed Bastoni at Inter. Judging by recent speculation, the duo may compete for multiple stars.

United recently tracked the Austria-Denmark game where they were keeping tabs on Christian Eriksen and Konrad Laimer, who are also on Spurs’ radar.

Eriksen in particular has hugely impressed Ten Hag since his recovery from a shock cardiac arrest. The 52-year-old believes the Dane could play a key role in the rebuild.

Man Utd ready to agree net £34million+ contract for signing, guarantee stability for decades – AS

Published

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

As per today’s version of AS (news image provided below), the Real Madrid superstar is really tempted by the offer made by the Red Devils.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
