Criscito confirms contact with Milan

18 July 2014 02:20

Zenit Saint Petersburg left-back Domenico Criscito revealed his agent has held talks with Milan over a potential transfer.

Criscito has been linked with a return to the Serie A after three years in Russia but the Italy international recently dismissed talk of a transfer, expressing a desire to see out the remaining two years on his contract alongside coach Andre Villas-Boas.

However, the 27-year-old seemingly backtracked when speaking to Italian television network Antenna 3 on Thursday.

Criscito said he was flattered by Milan's interest and negotiations were underway.

"When my name is combined with the big teams I enjoy it," Criscito is quoted as telling program Azzurro Italy.

"My agent has spoken with Milan and is working on this thing with Zenit.

"The Rossoneri [Milan] flatter me for some time and this can only make me happy, now we are having contacts with Milanbut I do not know at what point are negotiations.

"I'm training well, I'm working and I'm at a good club but if there should be something my agent calls me.

Criscito added: "Milan remains one of the largest clubs in the world, with [Filippo] Inzaghi [as coach] the team will have more oomph, just as he had as a player.

"[I] would return to Italy only for a team of great coat of arms, as in Russia I'm fine and my family is well established, every year I play the [UEFA] Champions League but I miss Italy and want to go back."
