Galliani hints at AC Milan move for Cerci

The Rossoneri vice president has denied the club have an agreement to sign the Atletico Madrid winger but intimated that an offer could be presented soon


AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani insists the Italian giants have not made an official bid for Alessio Cerci, but hints of an imminent move for the Atletico Madrid man.

Cerci only joined Atletico from Torino less than four months ago, but has struggled for game time in the Spanish capital and is almost certain to return to Italy when the transfer window reopens in January.

Milan have made the signing of a right-sided winger their priority next month – and the club already attempted to buy Cerci in the summer.

“For now, there is nothing,” Galliani told Gazzetta dello Sport when asked if rumours that a deal had already been agreed were true.

“But this doesn’t mean that something couldn’t happen in the future.”

Goal understands that both Milan and Inter are interested in the former Roma youth product, who has scored one goal in just nine appearances for Atletico.

Inter coach Roberto Mancini admitted earlier this week that his club could make a move of their own: “Is Cerci our primary objective for January? He could be, but we need to wait, as he is an Atletico Madrid player,” he told Sport Mediaset.

“In that role we are lacking really top level players. We need to improve as a squad and it takes time for that.”
