Milan and Inter interested in Ponte Preta defender CésarThe youngster could be on his way to Italy
The centre-back was revealed a target for both Milan clubs by the Italian broadcaster SKY Sports and the website TUTTOmercatoWEB.
Milan, now under the management of Clarence Seedorf, are apparently the most interested. Ponte Preta own 50% of the player’s economic rights and have contracted the player until June 2017. According to the Italian website, the deal would be worth £2.25.
César’s manager, Hugo Garcia, is not currently in the country and said that at the moment he couldn’t comment on the speculation. Whilst the rumours may come as a surprise to the alvinegro, the money would be welcomed by a club whose revenues will fall by 70% this year due to their relegation to Série B. The club has already sold Uendel to Corinthians and are close to selling Rildo to Atlético-MG.
Regardless of the speculation, the 21-year-old remains focussed on the São Paulo state championship which starts on Sunday.
“I let my manager take care of this type of situation. I’m only thinking about Ponte Preta and am preparing for the Paulistão,” he declared.
