AC Milan youngster Bryan Cristante is aiming for a first team breakthrough.
The teenager celebrated his 18th birthday on Sunday and put pen to paper on a professional contract at Milan on Monday.
“My preferred position is playing in front of the defence,” he told Milan Channel. “Although it is hard as the team revolves around you.
“Training alongside great champions will always help a youngster to grow. I look to people who play in my position like Ambrosini and Montolivo – I try to steal their secrets and tricks.”
