Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali is Series A’s best player – ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lautaro Martinez, and Paulo Dybala, claimed Juventus and Italy legend Andrea Pirlo.
Despite Brescia sitting at the bottom of the table and nine safety points, his performances have been widely praised, Tonali is currently taking part in his first season on the Italian top flight.
Including Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Barcelona, Juventus, Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain one of the top clubs in Europe was linked to a 20-year-old move dubbed ‘the next Pirlo.’
Tonali believes the youngster is already among the elite players of Serie A, though he has a different style of playing than his own.
Pirlo told Italian publication Gazzetta Dello Sport, “He is very good but he is different from me on the pitch.”
“He has everything to be a champion but he is more a midfielder for a two-man midfield. He could already play for a great team; he is the best in this league.”
This season, Tonali scored one goal, produced five goals, and made 24 appearances.
