Alessandro Buongiorno continues to be a hot commodity on the transfer market despite his gigantic valuation, and Bayern Munich are rivaling Milan to acquire him from Torino. The Bavarians just onboarded Eric Dier from Tottenham. However, they need another man because Matthijs De Ligt suffered a tricky knee injury. They have been working for PSG’s Nordi Mukiele, but they are mulling going after the Granata star too, Foot Mercato informs.
The Bundesliga powerhouse already tried to shop in Italy as they pursued Radu Dragusin. However, the former Genoa pillar decided to keep his word and joined Tottenham instead, much to the disbelief of his agent.
Per Gianluca Di Marzio, Buongiorno spent a night in Milan to chat with his agent about his future. The center-back is open to transferring to a top team, provided they reach an agreement with Torino.
The Granata want €35/40M. They aren’t too inclined to get Lorenzo Colombo as part of the deal, even though they like the young forward, Quotidiano Sportivo reports.
Our Take on Buongiorno, Milan, and Bayern Munich
Even though it’d be a huge technical loss, it’s a great situation for Torino. Things will get really serious once they start tracking center-backs. The Rossoneri must be thinking about using part of next summer’s budget since the links aren’t going away despite the hurdles. It’ll take a pretty penny to win the race, but he’s an easy bet to succeed in any team.
