Rossoneri expected to sign a replacement for out-going Boateng.
AC Milan are expected to sign either Real Madrid ace Kaka or Keisuke Honda after it was confirmed that Kevin-Prince Boateng would be joining Schalke.
The Bundesliga outfit are set to wrap up a €10m deal for the midfielder, which leaves the Rossoneri with the funds to find a suitable replacement before the transfer deadline on Monday.
Initial reports had suggested that former star Kaka would top their list after he revealed on Thursday night that he wants to leave the Spanish capital in order to secure regular first-team football.
Speculation suggested he would be willing to halve his wages in order to push through a return to San Siro, while Adriano Galliani reportedly told Lancenet that the player “is always in our hearts” and that a move could happen as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport.
However, the fee received for Boateng could also allow Milan to increase their bid for CSKA Moscow playmaker Honda.
The Japanese international is expected to join the club on a free transfer in January after agreeing personal terms, with a move being delayed due to an inability to reach an agreement on a transfer fee with the Russian outfit.
However, backed by the additional money received by qualifying for the Champions League group stages, coupled with Boateng’s fee, Milan may have the necessary funds to increase their bid for Honda to match CSKA’s valuation.
It is unclear at this stage as to who the club would prefer to sign, but both remain genuine possibilities as they look to continue their spending after signing Alessandro Matri from Juventus on Thursday.
