Galliani reveals plans for AC Milan youngster
The Primavera midfielder turned 18 on Sunday and signed his first professional contract a day later.
Now tied to the club until 2018, Cristante is expected to play a part in the first team squad next season.
“Kids will start on a kids salary, but their growth then depends on themselves.”
“A place in the first team? Let’s calm down, patience is needed.”
Cristante is expected to be joined by fellow Primavera youngster Andrea Petagna in the first team next season as well.
