sub in the 80th minute against cagliari would do him very goooood

Yeah, I can't say I've seen him play much but his CL debut at such a young age and Chelseas interest are enough for him to appear quite talented. 10 minutes against Cagilari would be great for him and would also give us an idea on how he plays and how good he really is.

At this rate of appearances Cristante is like Paolo Maldini

Is this guy even one of our best in the Primavera squad? Debuting at the age of 16 sounds very impressive, but I doubt he would've got to play that CL game if Kingsley B and several others of our prospects weren't missing or ineligible.

being one of the youngest players on the team and starting most of the games suggests that there is a ton of talent. Calvano is a better midfielder, but he is also older and they play different roles.

other thing to keep in mind is that while Kingsley might be better, we have more quality at striker than in the midfield

Nice mini match even though he finished in the losing side in the second quarter. Besides De Sciglio, Cristante is the player that seems to have a huge ceiling.

Hope to see Cristante get promoted this season or the next, seems very promising

I heard he got a good game. Happy to hear it seeing he is still very young (still 17 years old).

I hope to see him playing some games in Serie A. He is not a defensive minded midfielder like most of our midfielders so hopefully he could get chance from Allegri in the coming season.

1.86m, I hear he is AMF, why don't we label him as the next Kaka so he cracks under the pressure

He did play behind two strikers when Allievi won the championship, didn't he?

With Primavera and last friendly mini game he played as left/right CM.

I think, we still need to wait to know what actually his best position.

he is a central midfielder. They were comparing him to Aquilani last season

Valotti or Carmona played behind the strikers, Cristante played further back

we should probably keep him around and give him some game-time since we lack creative midfielders

the compromise that I see is Milan buying a team like AC Bellinzona that got relegated from the Swiss Super League last season (so they should be cheap) and they play in the Italian speaking region of the country, so our kids would feel at home.

being able to have more direct control of our youth players while they are on loan there would be very valuable

We should just wait what position will be given to him should he get chance from Allegri. I expect similar situation with Merkel regarding the position Christante would take, side CM and attacking CM behind two strikers.

Yes, I agree. He is similar like Merkel I think, who posses enough skill for many attributes of football like passing, ball controlling and protecting, dribbling, etc and have no super skill in certain area (both are not players who can dribble as good as Brazilian player for example). Christante is better in holding his position in the game IMO, being more disciplined than Merkel (in most occasions he is only in CM area of attacking, defending or ball possession). Christante's quality of passes, vision are also better than Merkel I think.

For goodness sake stop this. Merkel is professional, this lad is not. Wait until he graduates from the youth sector before making such claims. I'm not saying Merkel is better.In fact, I don't know who is better and my point is that you cannot say just from training videos.

LOL

I don't compare Christante now with Merkel now but both when they were still 'nothing' to Milan (Christante now and Merkel when was introduced to the first team).

How can we compare Primavera players with Serie A ones?

Ok, my mistake that I did not point it out clearly at the beginning of my comparation.
