Stamford Bridge side continue to plan for the future with potential San Siro raid.
Chelsea are closing in on highly rated Italian midfielder Bryan Cristante according to TuttoMercatoWeb. The AC Milan teenager’s is apparently in London and ready to hawk his client to potential prospective bidders.
The 17 year old is considered one of the hottest young properties in Italy and may well be a player that the San Siro is keen to keep but recent events at AC Milan could well lead the club vulnerable to raids from interested clubs. Silvio Berlusconi upset both management and supporters alike by selling star pair Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to PSG and as a result the Italian giants have struggled thus far this season.
Cristante broke into the first team picture last term but hasn’t been a part of Massimiliano Allegri’s plans thus far this season.
Chelsea have certainly made an exerted effort to plan for the future as Roman Abramovich provided £80m plus for Roberto Di Matteo to re-shuffle his Blues squad. Youngsters like Eden Hazard and Oscar have already made an impact and are certainly part of a long term strategy to help the West London club push for a Premier League title.
Chelsea have started the season brightly but may well look to land a few more talents in January as Abramovic has certainly re-captured the taste for spending.
