Juve, Inter, Spurs battle for Bastos

Juventus, Inter and Tottenham should know where Michel Bastos is going “some time next week,” said his agent.

The Brazil international has been at Olympique Lyonnais for many years, but has made it clear he would like to move on from Ligue 1.

Among the clubs vying for the full-back's signature are Spurs, Inter and above all Juventus, as the Turin giants have been heavily linked with him for well over a year.

The Nerazzurri are pushing up into the race thanks to Leonardo's presence and the fact they are offering Goran Pandev as part of the deal.

“There is nothing new for the moment, but we will have a much better idea some time next week,” his agent told L'Equipe.

Bastos is available for around €15m and from this week ought to be awarded an EC passport.
