‘He’s top class’ – Manchester United fans say the same after Alessandro Bastoni .’s reports

Manchester United supporters have responded to reports that their club is in the running for Inter Milan centre-back Alessandro Bastoni.

The 23-year-old has been tipped by some to follow in the footsteps of Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini to become an Italian great. He helped keep 20 clean sheets last season after winning the title the previous season.

The defender is reportedly in talks with Tottenham, who are led by his former Inter boss Antonio Conte. The Italy international joined from Atalanta in 2017 for £28 million, but is now believed to be worth at least double that amount.

Bastoni’s contract runs for two years after he signed an extension in May 2021. Still, it looks like he could be on his way to England this summer, according to journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

United fans were quick to respond to the reports, with some comparing Bastoni to Jurrien Timber, a United target. They took to Twitter to give their verdict.

@TommyRedGun: We should get this guy instead of Timber, please make it happen

@YAANITEED: If it is between Bastoni or Timber you will get Bastoni . every time

@juknicopados: He’s so good. He considered the future of Azzurri.

@lukayanited: This man is top class

@TridentTimes: Would KILL for this to happen.

@SirDeluded: Bastoni is miles away from Timber tbh
