The 17-year-old is the third member of the Maldini dinasty to grace the club with his younger brother, Daniel, also in the youth academy.

Born in 1996, Christian plays as a full-back and was one of several Primavera players to take part in Massimiliano Allegri's training session on Thursday.

His development at Milan has largely been kept quiet, presumably to protect him from the immense pressure his name entails.
