Tottenham Hotspur dealt major setback in their pursuit of Alessandro Bastoni
Bastoni’s agent Tullio Tinti had previously hinted that his client may reluctantly move if the club forces a sale. However, he met with Inter chiefs on Wednesday afternoon and has claimed that the defender will definitely stay at San Siro.
The 23-year-old extended his contract at San Siro only last year, with his current deal running until 2024. Known to be a big Nerazzurri fan, Bastoni has been inclined towards staying at Inter unless forced out.
His agent has now rubbished that possibility after fruitful talks with the Inter board. He said:
“He will definitely stay here. He has a contract at Inter. He is happy. It’s not a problem.”
What are Spurs’ other options?
This update arrives as a major setback for Spurs, who may now have to consider other options in the market. RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol and Villareal’s Pau Torres are other alternatives that have been discussed.
