Milan vice-President Adriano Galliani has admitted that a deal to sign Matias Silvestre is in progress.
The Inter centre-back is being targeted by the Rossoneri after Daniele Bonera suffered a fractured kneecap over the weekend.
And the board member has insisted that an agreement with the Nerazzuri is on the cards, whilst also commenting on Robinho’s injury and M’Baye Niang’s potential move away from San Siro.
“We're in talks with Inter for Silvestre,” he told reporters. “Now I will meet with the Inter directors to find an agreement.
“We still haven't agreed upon what kind of deal it will be for Silvestre.
“We're counting on having Robinho ready for the Champions League play-offs.
“If Niang leaves Milan then it won't be before the Champions League play-offs."
