Chelsea target Sandro Tonali has had his profile improved with his first national team call-up at the age of 18.
Roberto Mancini is not willing to take any chance on the player so as not to be snatched by other countries that are monitoring his progress, hence decided to hand him a place in the Azzurri side.
The likes of Juventus and Manchester City have all lined up for the Serie B Brescia player and they have been told that they will have to pay as much as £35 million to have him move away.
The young lad told CalcioMercato journalist Giacomo Brunetti of his experience and feeling with his first call to the national team.
Sandro Tonali stated that his first day with the team was as calm which helped him settle with other players as they all expressed their delight in seeing him in the national colours.
He added that he had learnt from his senior teammates and hope it continues but noted that the best decision for him was to have stayed with Brescia and not moving to Europe.
However, Sandro Tonali refused to speak on the interest for him from the Stamford Bridge but was quick to express his pleasure at being compared with legendary player Pirlo.
