Real Madrid eye €80m Serie A defender

According to Italian outlet Tuttosport, Real Madrid are reportedly considering a move for Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni.

The 25-year-old has established himself as a key player for Simone Inzaghi’s side, and his performances have attracted the attention of several top clubs.

Tuttosport claims that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is a big admirer of Bastoni and has requested his signing. The Italian defender’s left-footedness is also said to be a major factor in Madrid’s interest, as it is a rare trait among elite center-backs.

However, Inter Milan are unlikely to let their prized asset go easily. The report suggests that the Serie A giants would demand a fee of around €80 million for Bastoni’s services.

Despite the hefty price tag, Real Madrid are reportedly willing to make the investment, as they believe Bastoni can be a long-term solution at the back.

The potential pursuit of Bastoni would further highlight Real Madrid’s desire to strengthen their defense. David Alaba is the only left-footed center-back in the current squad, and his injury-prone nature has made the club seek reinforcements.

The Premier League’s top clubs are also said to be monitoring Bastoni’s situation, so Real Madrid will face stiff competition for his signature.
