According to Inter Live, Manchester United might spend approximately 153 thousand euros per week in order to sign Alessandro Bastoni, a defender now playing for Inter Milan.
Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez are currently acting as the Red Devils’ starting central defenders. Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire are currently serving as the Red Devils’ reserve central defenders.
This season, Luke Shaw has also seen significant time at left center back, but it’s possible that manager Erik ten Hag has other plans in mind for how to improve the unit.
For long time now, it has been said that Maguire will be leaving Old Trafford. His departure this summer will pave the way for the recruitment of a promising young player to take his place.
According to Inter Live, if Bastoni’s contract issue with Inter continues until the summer transfer window, the club that Manchester United would be interested in signing him might be a real possibility.
It has been claimed that the center-back makes €2.7 million per year (€4 million with add-ons), and it has also been suggested that Inter are prepared to pay €4.5 million plus bonuses for a contract extension.
But, his agent is asking for 6 million Euros. According to the information provided in the newspaper, in the event that a compromise cannot be made, Inter will have to contend with a “serious ᴛʜʀᴇᴀᴛ” from United for the Italy international player.
The Red Devils could be willing to pay up to €8 мillion per year, or €153,000 per week.
The 23-year-old is a professional left-footed center back. This season, Shaw has given adequate coverage for Martinez, but Ten Hag may seek a natural replacement for the Argentine.
With his defensive prowess, Bastoni would be an excellent addition to any team. This season, the Italian has won a remarkable four duels per game and made roughly two tackles.
Also, he has completed 86 percent of his passes while creating five excellent opportunities. If Bastoni joined the club, we believe he could be used in regular rotation with Martinez.
Transfermarkt now values the center-back at €55 мillion, but he might be acquired for a substantial discount if Inter cannot convince him to extend his contract, which expires next summer.
Manchester United identify Frenkie de Jong as their summer transfer target
Manchester United views Frenkie de Jong, a midfielder for Barcelona, as their top summer transfer target.
The Guardian reports that the Red Devils have resumed their chase of Frenkie de Jong after failing to recruit him last summer.
Throughout the summer transfer season, the Premier League heavyweights pursued his signing, but the 25-year-old wished to remain with the Spanish club.
Under Xavi, he has played a crucial role, appearing over 30 times and guiding Barcelona to the top of the La Liga standings.
Erik ten Hag is still a huge fan of De Jong, and he really wants him to join the squad at Old Trafford so that they can become even stronger.
During the transitional phase that occurred one year ago, De Jong made the decision not to transfer to Old Trafford and take the associated ʀɪsᴋ.
De Jong made the decision to stay at Barcelona despite the arrival of a new manager at Manchester United as well as the lack of competition in the Champions League.
In contrast, Ten Hag has fundamentally shifted how the club sees things over the course of the last 10 months.
The Carabao Cup is the first trophy that the Red Devils have taken home in the last six years.
They are a formidable Europa League and FA Cup contender. Due of their great Premier League standing, Champions League football seemed assured.
Everyone is hoping that Ten Hag would restore the Theatre of Dreams to its former glory, and De Jong would like to be a part of it.
The Netherlands midfielder had front-row seats to see United’s revival when the Red Devils eliminated the Spanish powerhouses from the Europa League.
If Ten Hag calls him again, he may consent to the transfer to Old Trafford.
