Santos want Gabigol back

Santos want to bring back Gabriel Barbosa, reports in Brazil suggest, but Inter would have to pay most of his wages.

The striker joined the Nerazzurri for €33.5m in the summer of 2016, but failed to make a single Serie A start and scored just one goal.

That saw the Brazilian, who is known as Gabigol, loaned to Benfica for the season, but aside from two cup appearances he’s managed just 43 minutes between the league and Champions League.

Kalinic to wear number 7

Nikola Kalinic will wear the number 7 shirt at Milan, the same number as Andriy Shevchenko.

A number of players have worn the number for the Rossoneri, but assigned squad numbers were only introduced for the 1995-96.

The first man to wear the shirt on a permanent basis was Paolo Di Canio, who scored five goals in 22 games before joining Scottish club Celtic.

That left the shirt free for the following campaign, before Edgar Davids bore the number for his 10 appearances in the 1997-98 season.
