Niang 'interested' in Milan move

Milan might’ve found the alternative to Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, as Caen teen M’Baye Niang visited the club headquarters. “I am really interested.”

The Rossoneri had targeted Yanga-Mbiwa as the reinforcement for a defence that has lost Thiago Silva and Alessandro Nesta this summer, but Montpellier rejected the €6m offer.

Instead, L’Equipe claims Caen’s 18-year-old Niang has already visited the Milan training ground for a tour on Friday.

“I was so impressed, it’s magnificent,” he said of Milanello.

“I am really interested in Milan.”

The Under-21 France international, who originates from Senegal, has a contract until 2014 and an offer is expected by the end of the day.
