A Serie A star and key Manchester United target has had a €30m price-tag slapped on his head amid interest from the Red Devils and other huge Champions League clubs.
Manchester United will need to pay €30m to secure the transfer of highly-sought after Atalanta midfielder Bryan Cristante.
The respected Italian outlet CalcioMercato has stated that now Atalanta have signed Cristante on a permanent deal from Benfica after a successful loan spell in Serie A, they have issued a €30m valuation on the star that has been heavily linked to a number of big clubs.
The report states that Manchester United and Jose Mourinho are some of the most notable interested parties in acquiring the 23-year-old with Serie A clubs Inter Milan and Roma monitoring the midfielder’s situation alongside Tottenham also.
Despite being just 23-years-old, Cristante has already had experience at huge European clubs. The star rose as a youth player through the ranks at AC Milan before sealing a move away to Portuguese giants Benfica in 2014.
The Italian then returned to Italy through a number of loan spells at Palermo and Pescara before signing permanently for Atlanta after initially singing a loan deal with the Italian club last year.
Cristante is highly-rated and despite his young age has already been capped at international level for Italy. Could he bring a perfect balance to the Manchester United midfield if the Red Devils were willing to match the €30m valuation of the star?
