‘Torino want to keep Belotti’

Torino President Urbano Cairo has reiterated his club plan to keep Andrea Belotti and that he would only sell the striker overseas for €100m.

Cairo’s remarks seemingly dispel those made by Torino sporting director Gianluca Petrachi, who suggested Milan could sign Belotti, on the basis that the Rossoneri “paid up”.

“I’m not thinking about selling Belotti,” he said at a promotional event in Milan, reports Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Belotti’s my player, we only renewed his contract recently. Our objective is to keep him.

“After that, there’s a release clause that would force me to sell him, providing someone came in with €100m from abroad.

“We’ll see... I haven’t talked to him yet, he’s currently with the national team.

“We’ll see how things go, but our objective would be to keep him.”
