‘Astori open to Inter, but…’

Davide Astori’s agent says the Cagliari man welcomes interest from Inter, but says talks with them, Roma and Milan won’t happen just yet.

The defender is about the enter the final year of his current contract with the Isolani and is increasingly being linked with a move away.

On from expectations of a bidding war between Roma and Lazio, Milan were named by the player’s representative as his first choice.

But, with reports in recent hours that Inter are making a push for the 27-year-old, Renzo Contratto has clarified the situation and his client’s openness.

“For now, there have been no official contacts yet. Let’s see what will happen,” Contratto has told

“It goes without saying that Inter are a solution that would be welcome. We are talking about a big club and of course there is also Roma and Milan.

“We speak of great teams and it is normal that there is a willingness to listen to any proposals. Davide in recent years has shown an important level of performance, fully demonstrating his qualities.

“Davide[’s contract] is about to expire in a year. He is not going to go on a free transfer to anyone, so he will either renew or there will be a farewell.

“At present, however, it is premature to consider these things as Cagliari are undergoing a change of ownership.

“When there is the appointment of a new sporting director and Coach, the picture will be clearer. After that, it will be easier to understand what may happen.”
