Milan sporting director Ariedo Braida insists that his club have no need for Udinese goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.
The Slovenian international, 27, has been linked with the Rossoneri on numerous occasions in the past, but the Diavolo insist he is not on their wish-list.
“It’s not true,” the official told Udineseblog. “We have Christian Abbiati at our club. In my opinion, Christian is the best goalkeeper in Italy after Gigi Buffon of Juventus.
“We are fine as we are in goal.”
Udinese and Milan will meet on Saturday evening, but Abbiati hasn’t been included in the squad because of injury.
Marco Amelia will thus takes the gloves at the Stadio Friuli.
