AC Milan have confirmed that they have called off their pursuit of Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano. The Brazilian front-man has netted 47 league goals in 105 la Liga outings since arriving from Porto in 2005, and had been interesting Manchester City, who have already signed Roque Santa Cruz, Carlos Tevez and Emmanuel Adebayor this summer. Having received more than £50 million from the sale of Kaka to Real Madrid, the Rossoneri singled out the Samba striker - who has scored 22 times in 31 appearances for his country - as their No.1 transfer target, having failed to lure Wolfsburg goal-machine Edin Dzeko to Italy. But with Sevilla wanting nothing less than €30 million euros for Fabiano's services, the Italians have now distanced themselves from a deal. "Luis Fabiano won't arrive in Milan. The negotiations have failed," said club lawyer Leandro Cantamessa. NEWS: Fabiano agent slams meandering Milan NEWS: Fabiano keen on San Siro switch
