Roma are reportedly looking to beat Inter and Juventus to the signing of Atalanta’s Bryan Cristante.
The midfielder is on loan from Benfica, but the Orobici will sign him outright at the end of the season per an option in the loan agreement.
It’s not expected that the Milan youth product will stay for long though, with both Juve and the Nerazzurri thought to be interested.
Now Il Tempo is reporting that Roma have joined the race, and sporting director Monchi wants to conclude a deal quickly to beat their rivals to the punch.
Any deal would be done in June, rather than this month, as Atalanta haven’t bought Cristante yet.
