Cristante: 'Pleased to be worth €30m'

Atalanta midfielder Bryan Cristante is wanted by numerous top clubs and is “pleased to hear I’m worth €30m” on the transfer market.

The 23-year-old was signed on loan from Benfica in January 2017 and they will activate a €4m release clause, but then most likely sell him immediately for a massive profit.

“I am pleased to hear I’m worth €30m, but in today’s market that is the sort of price you see now,” Cristante told L’Eco di Bergamo newspaper.

“If something comes up in the summer, Atalanta will talk to my agent about it.”

Juventus, Inter, Roma, Napoli and overseas clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool have all been linked.

“Meanwhile, I’d like to reach double figures for goals this season, seeing as I have scored eight already, but I only care about goals if they help my team reach an objective.”
