Marco Rigoni is pleased to have seen his name linked with a summer move to Milan. “It would be a dream,” said the Novara man.
The midfielder is on the Rossoneri’s radar as they look to refresh their options in the middle after some big name exits.
“Although I can’t be satisfied of the season seeing as we were relegated, I have to admit that the transfer interest makes me happy,” he told Sport Mediaset.
“Milan? I can’t help but smile. I think any player in the world would have dreamed about being paired with a big club like Milan as a child.
“It is very pleasing to be associated with them. It would be a dream transfer for me, but we’ll have to see what happens.”
The 32-year-old was one of his side’s success stories in a difficult campaign for the Stadio Silvio Piola outfit.
Rigoni, who started his professional career at Juventus, scored 11 goals in 35 games for the Piedmont side this term.
The Diavolo will lose numerous midfielders with Gennaro Gattuso and Mark Van Bommel already leaving, while there are doubts over Clarence Seedorf, Alberto Aquilani and Mathieu Flamini.
