Atalanta midfielder Daniele Baselli’s agent has commented on links to Paris Saint-Germain: “Now, Serie A is a starting point and not an end point.”
Speculation has been in recent weeks that the 22-year-old’s work with La Dea this season has caught the eye of PSG and a summer bid may be imminent.
Whilst Baselli has played down these links, his agent has now offered a more open comment, when asked if the likelihood of the player becoming ‘the next Marco Verratti’, to leave Italy for foreign shores.
“It would certainly not be good for our football,” Giuseppe Riso has told Gianluca Di Marzio’s website this week.
“But we must recognise that now, Serie A is a starting point and not an end point.
“And it is normal for our kids to be more attracted by experiences abroad.”
