Torino’s president Urbano Cairo has insisted that the club’s intention is to keep star striker Andrea Belotti next season.
Belotti has been linked with big-money moves to Manchester United and AC Milan recently, with the latter reportedly ready to offer a cash-plus-player deal.
Both clubs reportedly view him as an alternative to Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata, but the €100million release clause that Belotti’s contract demands presents a stumbling block.
Arsenal, Chelsea and Inter are among the other clubs rumoured to be considering a move for the Italian hotshot.
However, Torino president Cairo has once again revealed that he is not looking to sell their prized possession.
“I’m not thinking about selling Belotti,” he said to Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Belotti is my player, we only renewed his contract recently. Our objective is to keep him.
“After that, there is a release clause that would make me obliged to sell him, providing someone came in with €100m from abroad.
“Let’s see. I haven’t talked to him yet because he is currently with the national team. We will see how things go, but our intention would be to keep him.”
