AC Milan are reportedly set to launch a €35 million move for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas, after club president Silvio Berlusconi sanctioned the move. The 22-year-old midfielder, who has made 160 league appearances for the Gunners since arriving in 2003, has long been linked with a big-money move to former club Barcelona, as well as fellow la Liga giants Real Madrid. However, according to Tuttosport, it is the Rossoneri - with Kaka having moved to Madrid and fellow midfielder Andrea Pirlo being tipped to join Chelsea - who are now thought to be set to pounce. The report suggests that Milan vice president Adriano Galliani has an agreement in place with Berlusconi to move for the Spanish international, who has 41 caps for his country. And the San Siro giants are believed to be ready to offer Fabregas €4 million-per-season to leave the Emirates Stadium for Italian shores. A meeting between Galliani, Berlusconi and new Milan coach Leonardo that was planned for Tuesday is now thought to have been delayed until Wednesday, where the trio are expected to discuss their plans for Fabregas, Pirlo and attacking twosome Luis Fabiano and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
