Brescia’s sensation Sandro Tonali’s stunning free-kick goal should be on the big screen at the next Gran Gala del Calcio.
The Italian midfielder might be only 19, but his goal deserves to be on an infinite loop – the pace, bend and accuracy is, simply, a masterpiece.
Tonali, who recently made his senior debut with Italy against Liechtenstein in a Euro 2020 qualifier, has been referred to as the new Andrea Pirlo – who also started his career with Brescia – for his similar qualities as a regista.
Brescia owner Massimo Cellino recently stated that Tonali, who has been garnering heavy interest from Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, among other important European clubs, is worth $332 million and not the $55 million that the young midfielder’s parents and agent have told the Italian owner.
“His agent and his parents were telling me about this €50million evaluation,” Cellino said. “I replied that for me he is worth €300million, which means I don’t want to sell.”
“I have a dream,” he added. “If Sandro accepts, I am ready to make a big financial sacrifice to extend his contract. It’s up to him to decide. He can stay here and enjoy his football or go to a big club and risk being left on the bench.”
Money aside, Tonali sure possesses unteachable free-kick skills.
