Atleti eyeing Cristante

Reports have reached Spain that Atletico Madrid are considering a move for Milan youngster Bryan Cristante.

Atleti have been linked with a move in the January transfer window for attacking reinforcements, with Chelsea’s Kevin De Bruyne apparently heading their shopping list.

However, Los Colchoneros are reportedly also looking at Milan’s Cristante, an 18-year-old central attacking midfielder who is seen as a rising talent at San Siro.

Reports in Italy through the week have been that with Cristante struggling for playing time since debuting in Serie A last month, he may be set for a January loan move away from the Rossoneri, with Genoa and Parma listed as possible destinations.

However, those same reports have named Atletico, through their Italian director Andrea Berta, as also sniffing around a possible deal for Cristante, who is contracted to Milan until June 2018.
