AC Milan are interested in bringing midfielder Bryan Cristante back to the club from Roma in the summer, according to a report.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via PianetaMilan), it is not yet an open negotiation with Roma, but Cristante is more than an idea for the Rossoneri as they look to bolster the midfield so much so that they have enquired with the player’s agent, Giuseppe Riso.
Cristante is under contract with Roma until 30 June 2024 and currently earns €1.8m net per season. José Mourinho does not want to lose a player he considers to be important, but the Italy international is tempted by the possibility of playing in the Champions League for the club where he came through the academy.
An offer of €25m would make the Giallorossi think, while the eventual arrival of Cristante would not exclude the Renato Sanches operation being complete with Lille either because both Franck Kessie and Tiemoue Bakayoko are likely to need replacing.
