Will It Be Spurs Or Man United For £8mil Italian Defender?

Whoever's manager at White Hart Lane next season, it's clear that the defence could do with some reinforcements. Vlad Chiriches has impressed in flashes, Michael Dawson is a liability nowadays, Younes Kaboul is constantly injured, and Jan Vertonghen looks like he's on his way out.

Step forward Davide Astori, who Daily Express have also linked with Man United, though they'll both have to fight off competition from Serie A giants Milan, Juve, Lazio, and Roma for the centre-back.

The 27-year-old Italian defender has seven international caps and is an intelligent reader of the game, as you'd expect from someone schooled in the land where catenaccio was created. He does occasionally doze off, but overall he'd be a very smart signing for Spurs. Of course, you'll have to take our word on it, as YouTube doesn't have any compilations of him.

Maybe he needs to learn a few tricks.
