In-Demand Star Commits His Future to Inter Amid Exit Speculation

Inter star Alessandro Bastoni has quashed speculation linking him with several top European clubs, committing his future to Giuseppe Meazza. During an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, the sought-after defender reiterated his unwavering desire to stay with Nerazzurri.

Asked whether he sees his immediate future at Inter, Bastoni replied: “At the moment, I’d say yes,” via FCInterNews. “Do you want to know why? Every time we play, our team bus passes a big apartment building. I always see an older fellow there waving an Inter flag. He’s standing there every time.

Bastoni signed a long-term contract extension with Inter last summer. His new deal at Meazza lasts until 2027. However, that hasn’t discouraged a host of European heavyweights from adding the 25-year-old to their shortlists for the upcoming transfer window. 

Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Paris Saint-Germain, and Bayern Munich are among the clubs interested in prizing Bastoni away from Inter. City boss Pep Guardiola is particularly keen on the Italy international due to his well-documented technical attributes and ability to play from the back.

Despite being approached by elite foreign sides, Bastoni has never hidden his happiness at Inter. The former Atalanta center-back has been a focal point of Simone Inzaghi’s defense, helping Nerazzurri reach the Champions League final last season and all but secure their 20th Scudetto this term.

Bastoni has played a crucial role in Serie A’s best defensive team in 2023/24. Given his significance to Inzaghi’s setup, Inter will probably do everything to fend off his suitors this summer.
