Torino tie down striker Belotti

Andrea Belotti has signed a new deal with Torino until 2021 with a phenomenal 100 million euro release clause.

The 22-year-old has been in sensational form in Serie A, scoring 11 goals in 14 appearances in all competitions this season.

His form earned him a call up to the Italian national team, and Torino have now revealed the news in a club statement.

"I'm happy to inform you that we have renewed Andrea Belotti's contract until 2021 and given him a 100m release clause that can only be broken by foreign clubs," said president Urbano Cairo.

Torino had signed the goalscorer from Palermo for 7.5 million euros, and he even netted two goals to help Italy in their quest for World Cup qualification recently, taking his tally to three goals in five matches with the national team.

Manchester United were reported to be keeping tabs on the striker but will surely be put off by his new, improved contract.
