Bastoni reacts after agent says he's staying at Inter; not joining Tottenham

Alessandro Bastoni appears to have endorsed his agent’s comments confirming that he will be staying at Inter Milan this summer amid interest from Tottenham Hotspur, with a post on Instagram.

Bastoni has dealt Spurs’ transfer hopes a massive blow. Reports claimed that Antonio Conte had been asking about the 23-year-old every single day.

And it seemed that Tottenham were closing in on signing the defender. It was reported this week that Bastoni had informed the Nerazzurri that he wanted to leave and was keen to be reunited with Conte.

However, it seems that that has not been the case. In fact, it now appears that Tottenham will have to move on, with the Italy international not planning to go anywhere.

His agent, Tullio Tinti has today confirmed that Bastoni wants to stay at Inter.

Of course, Spurs fans may have held out hope that Bastoni may feel differently. However, judging by his latest Instagram activity, it does seem that the centre-back is happy with what his agent said.

An account posted a snippet of the comments. And in response, Bastoni sent a message simply including two heart emojis…

It is a real disappointment for Tottenham. Bastoni looks to have an incredible future ahead, and Conte knows just how special he can be.

Perhaps the one positive is that Bastoni has made this decision in early June. Tottenham now have time to switch their attention.

They are reportedly working on a deal for Pau Torres. And Fabio Paratici will undoubtedly have other targets in mind.

Obviously, their hopes of signing Bastoni look to have been dashed. But you also would not be surprised if there was one more twist further down the line either.
