Transfer latest from Milan

Milan insist that they won’t make any transfer decisions until January, but super agent Mino Raiola claims he’s currently in Brazil for the Italian club.

The Rossoneri are being linked with a new striker as a possible replacement for Antonio Cassano, the Italian international who could be out for six months following heart surgery.

“We’ll wait with regards to the transfer market,” Vice-President Adriano Galliani stated. “We need to know about Cassano’s recovery time.

“If a striker does arrive depends solely on Antonio’s condition. And if a forward does come then it will be on loan.

“We’ll decide in January.”

However, Raiola, the agent who helped Milan sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho, has revealed that he’s working on a new Rossoneri swoop.

“I’ve been in Brazil for the last 10 days with [Milan transfer official Ariedo] Braida,” he told Metro.

“We’ve seen a lot of games together, but the target will be the most important player that Milan will sign. In January? Maybe.

“I can’t say who it will be, but he will take up the non-EU spot in the squad.”

Whispers suggest that Sao Paulo midfielder Casemiro, 19, is at the top of the outfit’s wish-list.

Raiola was also asked about the possibility of Carlos Tevez joining Milan from Manchester City in the New Year.

“I don’t know,” he added. “But a loan move to Italy for Tevez is not impossible. Two years ago City loaned Robinho to Santos for free.”

Tevez, currently in Argentina, is looking for a City exit after clashing with Italian boss Roberto Mancini.
