AC Milan make a move on Criscito

AC Milan are pondering a move for Zenit full-back Domenico Criscito, La Gazzetta dello Sport has revealed.

The Rossoneri do not have a single natural left-back in their ranks after Urby Emanuelson left for Roma, and they are keen to lure the Italy international to San Siro.

AC Milan are not exactly prepared to match Zenit’s €12 million asking price, but they aim to lower the amount by including one or two players in the deal.

In addition to Ignazio Abate, who has long been on the radar of the Russian giants, the Rossoneri are ready to send one of Cristian Zapata, Philippe Mexes and Michelangelo Albertazzi to St Petersburg.

Domenico Criscito has revealed his plans to return to Italy on numerous occasions, but his hefty wage has proved to be a major obstacle to any deal.

However, with highest earner Kaka leaving the club, the Rossoneri have the ability to offer the defender similar wage to that which he has been pocketing in Russia.
