Milan target Bayern Munich pair

Milan are targeting a double Bayern Munich swoop for Bastian Schweinsteiger and Miroslav Klose.

The Rossoneri are seeking two main figures on the transfer market this summer – a left-sided midfielder and an understudy to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

According to Tuttosport, both of them could arrive in one deal organised with the Bayern directors.

Schweinsteiger is the impressive German international who would give vitality to the left side of their midfield and lower the average age of the squad.

He renewed his contract with Bayern until 2016, but could walk away after the dismissal of manager Louis Van Gaal.

Schweinsteiger would reunite with his former Bayern Munich teammate Mark Van Bommel, who arrived at San Siro in January.

A third element is also on their wish-list, as hitman Klose is considered a good alternative to Ibrahimovic.

Milan lack a tall centre-forward in the Swede's style, so Klose would be available relatively cheap and has international experience.

There is a very strong rapport between the two clubs, so negotiations could progress fairly quickly.
