According to Massimo Cellino president of Brescia, Sandro Tonali wanted to join Milan thus he rejected Barcelona and Manchester United offer.
Tonali is an international three-time Italy starred in 2019-20 for Brescia, although they were relegated from Serie A.
Apart from Barca and United, the 20-year-old was also strongly linked to a move to Inter, but now he’s set to join Milan.
Despite proposals from Barcelona and United, Tonali is excited to join Milan, stated Cellino.
“We received a €65million offer from Barcelona in January. Not later than 10 days ago we received a 10million higher offer from Manchester United than that from Milan,” he told Top Calcio 24.
“But the boy was set to go to the Rossoneri.”
Cellino added: “I know Conte thought a lot about Tonali [Antonio] but I was also convinced that he was going to Inter.”
“But the boy no longer wanted to hear anything at a certain point, and went to Milan.”
