Massimo Cellino tells Manchester United, Manchester City, and PSG that one of them will have to cough up 300 million Euros for Sandro Tonali.

Cellino is the president of Brescia, Tonali’s current club, and he thinks very highly of his prized asset.

So much so that it would take a world-record fee to pry him out of the Italian minow’s hands.

In an interview with Gazzetta Dello Sport, Celino wanst to keep hold of the young Italian and has priced the player accordingly.

He said:”‘His agent and his parents were telling me about this €50 million evaluation.”

“I replied that for me he is worth €300 million, which means I don’t want to sell.”

The player has been compared to the like of Pirlo.

Given the current transfer prices, that kind of money for a player of Pirlo’s quality it is not unimaginable.

Speaking to Rai Sport, the player is full of affection for his club’s supremo and appreciates the faith he has in him, and sees it as encouragement rather than a burden.

Tonali said:

“I love president Cellino very much and he rates me highly.”

“He’s a great person and I hope to travel down a good road with him.”

“After the match against Fiorentina, he said he wouldn’t even sell me for €300m (£256m), but that doesn’t scare me, even if it really is a lot of money.”
