United Eyeing £40m Raid For Serie A Starlet After Dazzling Scouts With His Performances

Manchester United are stepping up their interest in Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali, according to the Sun. The Red Devils have been keeping tabs on the 19-year-old in recent months and scouts have been sending glowing reports back  about his performances this season.

The Italian international is a player in high demand, with United’s rivals Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan all said to be keen on the player.

Brescia are reportedly very reluctant to let Tonali leave, with many observers believing he is a once in a generation talent. He generally plays as the anchor man in midfield, much like Andrea Pirlo used to do, and he has a good passing range.


The Sun report that the Italian could, though, be sold if a fee in the region of £40m is tabled. He has made nine appearances in all competitions so far this campaign, scoring once and providing two assists.
