Riccardo Saponara is looking forward to playing alongside Riccardo Montolivo at Milan next season.
The Under-21 international, currently at Empoli and co-owned with Parma, will move to the Diavolo in the summer.
“Montolivo fascinates me,” the attacking midfielder told the Gazzetta dello Sport. “He just keeps on getting better and I hope to do the same.”
The San Siro giants quickly wrapped up the deal for the 21-year-old during the January transfer market.
“I’ve been to the Milanello training base on two occasions,” the Azzurrini regular continued. “The first time was after I signed, the second two weeks ago.
“The facility is incredible and it is inevitable that it would fascinate me. I liked the atmosphere there.”
