D’Alessandro delighted with Atalanta move

Marco D’Alessandro, former Roma winger, spoke to Corriere di Bergamo about his move to Atalanta as the Giallorossi are closing in on his sale to the Bergamo-based outfit.

“As soon as I heard of the interest of La Dea, I began to study (them). Everyone advised me to choose Atalanta, it’s the perfect place for me. Bonaventura? I don’t feel like a substitute, but I hope to follow in his footsteps. I have not spoken with Colantuono because the transfer isn’t official, but I cannot wait.”
