Benzema to join Milan?
According to Sportitalia, Real Madrid star Karim Benzema could soon seal a Milan move.
Journalist Michele Criscitiello revealed a secret trinity chain between the Madrid side, PSG and Milan. It all begins with former Pescara talent Marco Verratti, who despite the strong interest from Fiorentina, is likely to team-up with Ancelotti at Real Madrid on a 5-year-deal with a salary of €4,5 million per season.
However, that is not the end. The famous Milan and Roma legend would also like to lure Sweden international Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who could sign a 3-year-deal with the Barcelona rivals – squeezing out French star Benzema.

“Bringing Kaka back is a difficult task, but not an impossible one.
“Ancelotti has got to make a decision on him. If not a positive one, we might see him return on 2 September”, he told ilsussidiario.net.
In contrast, Eurosport reports that the Rossoneri could make a last-minute move for another Madrid ace, Luka Modric. The Croatian international is in coach’s plans but reports have emerged that Milan could persuade him to leave.

Milan to swap players with Parma and rivals Inter?
