Adriano Galliani has confirmed Milan “want to sign Taye Taiwo, even without an EU passport.”
The Marseille full-back will be out of contract at the end of the season and has long been associated with a free transfer to San Siro.
“We do want to sign Taiwo, even without an EU passport,” Vice-President Galliani told Sky Sport Italia.
The Nigerian defender has had a splendid campaign for Marseille in Ligue 1 and scored the winner in the French Cup Final.
Galliani also commented on the links to Santos starlet Paulo Henrique Ganso.
“We still have to make a formal offer. Clubs are quite rich in Brazil now and they tend to resist releasing their players.”
