'Montolivo has Milan deal'

The transfer window may now be closed, but the rumours continue to circulate regarding the future of Riccardo Montolivo.

The midfielder was expected to be sold by Fiorentina after he refused to sign an extension to his contract that expires in June 2012.

However, despite links with a number of different clubs, he has remained at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Nevertheless, according to Mediaset, the Italian international now has a verbal agreement to join Milan next year on a Bosman.

The former Atalanta player, it is claimed, will be handed a four-year San Siro contract worth €3.5m a season.
