Agent talks up Gattuso Chelsea move

AC Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso could move to Chelsea this summer, according to the player’s agent. Still furious after Kaka's £56 million move to Real Madrid, Milan fans have been forced to endure a week where almost all their first team stars have been linked with moves away from the San Siro, with fears that the Brazilian’s exit will prompt a mass exodus of the club's top players. Now it seems tough-tackling midfielder Gattuso could be the latest Milan star to be attracting interest from Europe’s other top sides. With former Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti reportedly keen to reunite with a number of former players at Stamford Bridge, Gattuso appears to be a target for the London club, along with Alexandre Pato and Andrea Pirlo. And if Ancelotti's interest is serious there is a significant chance the World Cup winner could be on his way to Stamford Bridge. Gattuso's agent Andrea D'Amico confessed: “The rapport between the player and the coach [Ancelotti] is very strong,” “He was deeply distressed by the decision to change the boss. Gattuso is very attached to Ancelotti, but at the same time I believe that Milan cannot afford to part with such a player” he said, before adding: “Then again - in the transfer market, never say never…” Having made his breakthrough with Glasgow Rangers during the 1997-98 season, Gattuso is no stranger to British football and if Chelsea are to make an offer D'Amico believes a deal can be struck. “Should a very important offer come in, I feel that negotiations could be opened, but no bids have arrived so far.”
