Alessandro Bastoni has opened up on why he rejected a move away from Inter Milan this summer, with Tottenham reportedly pushing hard to sign the Italian international.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, the 23-year-old defender revealed that he did not want to leave the city of Milan or depart Inter just yet, with Bastoni speaking about his love for the club and his teammates as the Serie A giants prepare for a huge season.

Bastoni played under Antonio Conte in their title-winning season with Inter in 2021, and since then, the youngster has established himself as one of the best defenders in Europe as well as a target for many top sides, with Tottenham one of the clubs eyeing the Italian this summer.

With Inter looking to sell and Bastoni valued at a reported £54m, it would have made sense for Tottenham to sign the defender, especially given his relationship with Conte, yet the centre-back appears to be one of the few players at the Nerrazzuri who is not available this summer.

Indeed, the Serie A colossus is one of the best in his position in Italy, and given his age, Bastoni is a player Inter should be looking to build their future around, and the defender’s recent comments on why he rejected the chance to sign for Tottenham indicate that the youngster is set to stay at the San Siro for some time.

Bastoni said on why he decided to stay with Inter this summer: “I never had a doubt about staying, I always wanted to remain with Inter. I have a great relationship with my teammates, the club, and I love the city of Milan, there’s no reason for me to leave.”

Bastoni always felt like an ambitious target for Tottenham, and these latest comments from the defender could potentially rule out any potential signing of the talented Italian defender for the north London side, even if Conte is still at the club in 12 months time.

After all, Bastoni seems to be enjoying life with Inter, and with the Serie A side winning silverware in the last two seasons, the defender is in a position where moving Tottenham will feel like a step back given where Simone Inzaghi’s side currently find themselves.
