Inter Milan and Juventus are preparing to go toe-to-toe for Sandro Tonali of Brescia, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Juventus have largely been the dominant force in Italian football in the last decade, but Inter have obviously begun challenging their reign on all fronts. The Nerazzurri spent heavily last summer and the investments they poured into their team have given result.
The ongoing break in football caused by the Covid-19 pandemic found them sitting in third place in the Serie A table, with nine points between them and Juventus at the top. But Inter have a game in hand with 12 whole rounds yet to be played, presuming the season is continued.
At the age of 20, Tonali is widely perceived as the next great Italian midfielder and has often been compared to Andrea Pirlo. He has been linked with a number of clubs across Europe, but it seems Inter and Juventus will each do their best to keep him in his homeland.
A few months ago, reports in Italy suggested Brescia wanted €55 million for his services, but the current situation might force them to reconsider their stance.
