LUIS Fabiano publicly begs to be allowed to join Milan, as Adriano Galliani visits Spain to swoop for the Brazilian and Klaas Jan Huntelaar.
The Rossoneri have made it clear they want a big name centre-forward to appease the fans following Kaka’s £60m sale to Real Madrid. It’s reported that today Vice-President Galliani is jetting out to Spain for advanced negotiations with two different Liga clubs.
Nominally his trip is to talk to Real over their benchwarmer Huntelaar, the young Dutch hitman who was signed in January, but will struggle for space with the many new arrivals.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Milan will ask for Huntelaar on loan, a deal that would be of benefit to both clubs.
It would also give the Rossoneri free cash to spend on their other forward target, Sevilla star Luis Fabiano.
“I know that Milan have made an offer and I would like for Sevilla to consider it,” the Confederations Cup top scorer told ABC.
“Until now I’ve preferred to stay on the sidelines, because Milan had not made me any proposals, but now I understand this is an incredible opportunity for me.
“I am happy at Sevilla, but I realise that at the age of 28 there will be few other chances like this for me. Milan are one of the best clubs in the world.”
Yesterday Luis Fabiano’s agent also commented on the player’s wish to join Milan, where he would work with new Coach Leonardo.
The contract has a 30m Euro buy-out clause, but Milan have so far offered only 16m Euros and face competition from Manchester United.
