Manchester United are linked with a number of top center backs and once again, the name of Alessandro Bastoni is in the lime light.
Back in 2022, Erik ten Hag was eager to lure the Italian international, who has been brilliant for Inter Milan.
Now, according to TV Play (via Fichajes), Man Utd are ready to bid £51.6million (60 million euros) to sign Bastoni in the summer transfer window this year.
The news source have mentioned that the Old Trafford club are prepared to go all out to make the Azzurri man the new star of the club.
The 24-year-old defender was a key part of the Nerazzurri squad that won the silver medal in the UEFA Champions League last season.
As far as the current campaign is concerned, Bastoni has started 13 games in the Serie A for Inter Milan and helped the team keep 9 clean sheets.
We can expect him to be in action for the Italian leaders when they collide against Hellas Verona in the early kick off today.
Bastoni has won every major domestic title at the San Siro and he was part of the Italian squad that lifted the European Championships trophy in 2021.
The youngster has the quality to reinforce the backline at Old Trafford but in all fairness, Man Utd desperately need to reinforce the defense this month and must not wait for the summer.
In your opinion, should Man Utd bid £51.6million to sign Alessandro Bastoni in the January transfer window?
