According to Italian sport newspaper Tuttosport, AC Milan have joined Inter Milan in the race to sign Sampdoria and Italy star Antonio Cassano.

Tuttosport claims that the Italian giants are vying to sign Cassano, despite the fact that the striker only just signed a permanent deal recently to join Sampdoria. However, reports claim that the deal included a 15 million euro buy-out clause for the star.

Cassano was once one of Italy’s hottest prospects before his career slightly faded from the limelight when he signed for Spanish giants Real Madrid. Now once again back in the limelight, Cassano has attracted some the attention of top European clubs, although it looks likely that Cassano will prefer to stay in Italy.

The 25-year-old’s outstanding form at Sampdoria saw him win a place in Italy’s Euro 2008 squad, and he is now arguably a regular, having played the full 90 minutes of yesterday’s 2-0 win over France that booked the Azzurri’s place in the quarter finals.

Sampdoria’s General manager Beppe Marrotta has admitted that the two Milanese clubs have been in contact regarding the skillful forward.

Moratto told press: “It’s true, Milan and Inter have sounded us out about Cassano, However, for now, we do not intend to sell him.”

It appears more likely that Cassano will stay on at the club that brought him back to the limelight for at least another year, and possibly next summer will see the striker join one of the Italian giants.
