Alessandro Bastoni now puts two Tottenham players in his dream five-a-side team
Bastoni was chased for a substantial period of time this summer by Tottenham and was right up the list of Antonio Conte’s central defensive targets.
But he resolved to stay at Inter Milan, and Spurs have now moved onto Clement Lenglet to fill the void at the back, on a season-long loan from Barcelona.
The fact Lenglet is only provisionally in north London for a season means that Spurs could yet go back in for Bastoni next summer.
Bastoni picks his five-a-side team
Bastoni has been asked on social media to pick his dream five-a-side team, and he has named Harry Kane and Son Heung-min in the side.
The defender could have been their club teammate already if he had pushed for a move but seems content at the San Siro as it stands.
Also named are Kylian Mbappe, who rejected Real Madrid this summer to stay at Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich’s Alfonso Davies and legendary forward Goran Pandev.
It should be added that he was naming the players based on the flags which came up by the randomly generated filter on TikTok.
So that perhaps explains why there is no goalkeeper and no room for the likes of Lionel Messi, but it shows Bastoni is a fan of certain potential new teammates.
If Lenglet shines this season, perhaps Spurs will keep him on but otherwise, Conte could go back in for Bastoni, perhaps hoping that the prospect of playing alongside Son and Kane is more enticing next time around.
