Manchester United have been one of the most active teams in the transfer market when it comes to find potential January additions to the club. Although no offers have been submitted, The Red Devils have been linked with a plethora of names already.
One of the names we can add into the mix is the one of Sandro Tonali. The talented Brescia midfelder, who has been already dubbed as “the new Andrea Pirlo” has been scouted by Manchester United officials several times this season, and the Old Trafford outfit would be open to make business as soon as next January.
The 19–year-old would cost around £40m but unlike other young players in top teams that have been linked with an Old Trafford move – such as Jadon Sancho and Kai Havertz – this time, Brescia would be open to make a move. Tonali has been a regular starter for Brescia since last season, and has reportedly impressed with his play now that Brescia are back on Italy’s top-flight.
The player himself said he’s in no rush to leave the club.
“I have fun and I slave away for it willingly, but I know I can’t mess up now: I don’t have a plan B. Promotion to Serie A was the greatest emotion of my life after being called up to the national team. Whatever my future is, I’ll make a decision with my President. Cellino is a good man. He knows what the best solution is for my future.”
“I’m happy to stay here. Maybe I could become an icon for Brescia. I don’t have a preference over Inter, Juve, Milan and Roma, I’m just interested in playing,” he added.
Expect United to make a move for him as soon as the chance arises.
