Milan confirm they have turned down a €3m offer from Benfica for Italian-Canadian midfielder Bryan Cristante.
“The lad is one of the young talents Milan do not want to sell, therefore he will remain with the Rossoneri,” agent Giuseppe Riso told Il Sussidiario.
“It is true, Benfica have made an offer worth €3m to Milan, but the club categorically refused to sell. He is absolutely not on the market.”
CEO Adriano Galliani also commented on the proposal that came in from Portuguese giants Benfica.
“Cristante will absolutely remain at Milan,” he told TuttoMercatoWeb.
“They keep on calling me from Portugal, but I continue to say he’s not for sale. We will not sell another great product of the Milan youth academy.”
