Milan are ready to reinforce their defence with Brazil international Rodrigo Caio of Sao Paulo in January.
The 23-year-old had already been heavily linked with a move to Serie A over the summer, as the Rossoneri and Lazio were interested.
According to Sport Mediaset, Milan are planning another attempt for the Sao Paulo talent in the mid-season window.
By January, the new Chinese owners should have taken over the club and strengthened the coffers with fresh funds.
