Roma Ahead Of Inter In Race For Cristante
Corriere dello Sport are convinced that Roma lead the way in the race for Atalanta’s Bryan Cristante, ahead of many clubs like Inter.
Roma sporting director Monchi has a €35 million offer ready in order to avoid a repeat of last season wherein they lost out on another Atalanta midfielder in Franck Kessie to AC Milan.
“Rome is betting on Cristante in anticipation of a very dynamic market, especially among the midfield players. Monchi is willing to listen to offers for Nainggolan and especially for Strootman, who has a €45 million release clause. But the player most at risk in the department is Lorenzo Pellegrini, also master of his destiny because of the clause signed a year ago. Roma could yield €30 million from his sale, which represents a massive capital gain for them after only paying €8.75 million”
Cristante came in to numerous links with the Nerazzurri during the January transfer window but Inter management were ultimately unable to complete a deal to land the Italian international.
