AC Milan to move for Alonso? by lfctalk

Carlo Ancelotti is rumoured to be preparing a bid in the region of £15m for playmaker Xabi Alonso. The Spanish midfielder came close to making a move to their rivals, Juventus, earlier in the Summer and now the Rossoneri could be set to make their move.

The only stumbling block could be that the Euro 2008 winner played in last night’s draw in Belgium, which cancels him out of playing in Europe for anyone else this season and would also potentially drop his transfer value considerably.

FansFC.com have reported:

“A move to Juventus was scrapped when the Italians refused to offer any more than £12million, whilst the Reds are reluctant to entertain interest from Arsenal.

“Carlo Ancelotti has now believed to have targeted the former Real Sociedad player for a move to the San Siro, and an offer of £15million will be enough to ensure the services of Alonso.”

With Gareth Barry set to feature for Aston Villa in their UEFA Cup qualifier tonight, the move could be a waste of time on Milan’s part, as Liverpool may not be willing to sell if the England midfielder is not set to arrive.
