Timothy Castagne spoke for the first time about the level of Celtic interests and how he ended up in Serie A.
The right Atalante attack was targeted by Brendan Rodgers in the January window, but the £ 10 million dollar price was protected from Scottish champions.
Celtic left the right-hander late, who so desperately wanted Jeremy Toljan to sign in the night.
The signing Borussia Dortmund has joined the lease by the end of the season, and the giants of Glasgow may once again flaunt their interest in Castagne.
However, the Belgian international party insisted that it wanted to stay in Italy when it admitted that Celtic tried to buy it last month.
23-year-old Castagne said: "Before the window where I played a little, I did not play much and I admit I was thinking about moving.
"But how can I leave that?" Celtic tried to buy me, but this is the best moment in my career and I want to stay here. "
"If confidence increases, it's natural. It's also ridiculous to talk about leaving for the Champions League or the Europa League, because atalanta wanted to qualify.
"As regards national time, my goal is to be on the Euro 2020."
