AC Milan are also believed to be lining up a swoop for out-of-favour Man Utd midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, according to reports in the Italian media.
The Serie A club are now looking for a replacement for midfielder Riccardo Montolivo, who suffered a knee injury in Italy’s World Cup qualifier against Spain on Thursday night that is likely to rule him out of action for the next six months.
Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has struggled for playing time under Jose Mourinho having made only four appearances for United this season. The French midfielder joined United in a £25million deal last year from Southampton.
However, Jose Mourinho does not consider him vital to his plans, having started Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba in midfield. Now, latest reports from MilanLive suggest that the Serie A giants are interested in securing the services of the out of favour midfielder.
