Alessandro Bastoni has revealed Inter’s players are strictly forbidden from discussing the Serie A title by Antonio Conte.

Inter are 11 points clear at the top of the table with only eight games left, making them odds-on favourites to secure the club’s first Scudetto since 2010.

Conte will take his side to play Napoli at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Sunday, and it seems the Nerazzurri’s head coach is desperate for his players to focus on the present.

“The word ‘Scudetto’ is banned, the coach is reminding us in every team meeting,” Bastoni told Sport Mediaset.

“We have to stay focused until we have the title in our hands.

“Our slogan for the last two years here has been to keep your head down and work hard.”

Bastoni has established himself as one of Europe’s most promising centre-backs since Conte threw him into Inter’s starting XI at the beginning of last season.

The 21-year-old is likely to attract attention from various top clubs in the upcoming summer transfer window, but he assured he was in no mood to consider leaving Inter.

“I’m very happy here and I’m concentrated on this team,” Bastoni added.

“My dream is to win trophies with Inter, I’m happy in Milan.”

Bastoni has made 34 appearances in all competitions for Inter this season, providing four assists.

He also discussed his relationship with Conte and fellow defenders Milan Skriniar and Stefan de Vrij in another part of his interview.
