AC Milan missed out on the signing of Krisztian Lisztes as he chose to join Eintracht Frankfurt from Ferencvaros, according to a report.
SPORT1 report that Eintracht have moved to secure Lisztes ahead of the 2024-25 season and they will pay a fee of around €4m for a player considered by many to be ‘Hungary’s greatest talent’ at the moment.
Krisztian Lisztes Senior – his father – was involved in this transfer and pushed him to join the Bundesliga, because Eintracht sporting director Markus Krösche and his team had the teenager on their list from an early stage.
During various discussions, Krösche and sports director Timmo Hardung convinced the U21 national player to move to Frankfurt despite the fact a number of different clubs showed interest.
As SPORT1 report, Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Mönchengladbach, VfB Stuttgart, AS Monaco, AC Milan, Juventus Torino, Brighton & Hove Albion, Manchester City and Brentford made enquiries.
The story of players like Jesper Lindström – who moved to Frankfurt from Copenhagen before his Napoli switch this summer – and Randal Kolo Muani show that they are capable of developing talents but also selling when the time is right.
