Adriano Galliani confirms Milan are interested in Belgium international Axel Witsel, “but we are not in negotiations for him.”
This is not the first time the Rossoneri have been linked with the 23-year-old Benfica midfielder.
“I can only say that Witsel is a player we like a great deal, but at this moment we are not in negotiations for him as a potential signing,” Vice-President Galliani told O’Jogo.
“Is he too expensive for the Rossoneri funds? This is not something I intend to talk about.”
Zlatan Ibrahimovic raised eyebrows on Friday by stating that Milan had no money to sign big players.
Witsel’s price-tag is thought to be in the region of €25m and he is also of interest to Real Madrid, PSG and Chelsea.
