In a recent report, Fichajes stated that Inter Milan centre-back Alessandro Bastoni is on Real Madrid‘s radar this summer. It has been revealed that Los Blancos are hoping to strengthen their defence by making a move to lure the Italian defender to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium during this summer transfer window (via Fichajes).
Bastoni’s Solid Season In Italian Football
It was an encouraging campaign for Bastoni at San Siro after he put in a run of commanding displays at the centre of the Inter backline. His excellent contributions on the defensive end of the field were enough for the Milan giants to secure the Serie A title earlier this year. The 22-year-old picked up four assists and eight yellow cards in 41 matches for the Italian club last season in various competitions.
The Casalmaggiore-born talent proved his worth as a capable defender by averaging 1.1 tackles, 1.2 interceptions and 2.2 clearances per 90 minutes in Serie A football. He even took care of the ball well when distributing possession from the back, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 90.5% in league football (stats via whoscored).
Bastoni was also part of the Italy squad that won the UEFA European Championships recently, so he knows what it takes to win and would fit into Carlo Ancelotti’s plans quite well at the Bernabeu next season.
Should Los Blancos Get Bastoni On Board This Summer?
Bastoni can read the danger quickly and can nip them in the bud inside his half. He is a strong tackler of the ball and can make a few important interceptions at the back. Standing at 1.90m, the Italian defensive ace is a rock at the back as he can often overpower the opposition to win some 50-50 aerial duels for this team. He has the potential to become one of the best players in his position someday, so Ancelotti would be wise to move in for him in this off-season.
At 22, the best is yet to come from Bastoni, so he will be a great, long-term option for Real Madrid to pursue this summer. The Italian youngster will add a lot of quality to Ancelotti’s defence and has what it takes to form a fruitful defensive partnership with David Alaba next season.
Therefore, the Madrid outfit should think about getting Bastoni on board before the start of the new campaign as he could help them challenge for multiple trophies in the years to come. Plus, he could grow into a top talent under the expert guidance of the new Real Madrid manager this summer.
