Official: Palermo sign Cristante

Bryan Cristante has officially joined Palermo, on loan from Benfica with a right of redemption.

The former Milan midfielder flew to Sicily this week for a medical, and the Rosanero have now officially confirmed he has joined.

“U.S Citta di Palermo announces the signing of Bryan Cristante on loan from Benfica with the option to buy,” a statement on the club’s official website announced.

“The midfielder, born in 1995, who will wear the number 24 shirt, has joined the Rosanero squad at the training camp in Coccaglio.”

It’s thought the buyout clause in the deal will be worth around €6m.
