Adriano Galliani Rejects Rumours Linking Milan With Juventus’ Paolo De Ceglie

The Rossoneri are not interested in their rival’s left-back…

Juventus’ Paolo De Ceglie has recently been mooted in the press as the solution to Milan’s search for a left-back, but the Rossoneri vice-president has now played down the rumours.

“No, this idea isn’t feasible,” Galliani is quoted as saying by

“De Ceglie is a Juventus player and I’ll rule out [the possibility] that Juventus could sell a player to Milan.”

Galliani’s declaration follows the statement of De Ceglie’s agent, Carlo Pallavicino, who said that no one has contacted him from Milan and that the 23-year-old would stay in Turin.

The Rossoneri’s deal for Aly Cissokho, now of Olympique Lyonnais, fell through earlier this summer, leaving coach Leonardo still without a replacement for Marek Jankulovski.

While a bid for De Ceglie looks to be off the cards, Milan are still said to be weighing up a move for Lazio’s talented young right-back Lorenzo De Silvestri.

The alternative option for Leonardo is to convert winger Ignazio Abate into a left-back, a possibility that the Brazilian is rumoured to be seriously considering.
