Cristea, who looked very promising back in his Steaua days, when a brace scored against Valencia made the exhuberant owner Gigi Becali state that he will sell this player for no less than 20 million Euros. Now, Dinamo would be more than happy to cut the zero and cash in 2 million Euros, as they paid less than half of million to get the forward from FC Timisoara…
