AC Milan Ponder Swoop For Inter's Thiago Motta - Report

The Serie A champions are in the market for a new midfielder and are reportedly ready to lure the former Barcelona player away from their city rivals
Thiago Motta could be on his way out of Italian giants Inter at the end of the season as city rivals AC Milan have expressed an interest in signing the Italian international, Il Corriere dello Sport reports.

The Serie A champions are in the market for a new midfielder because of the ongoing uncertainty regarding the future of Andrea Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf, and see Motta as the perfect addition to their squad.

The 28-year-old started his professional career with Barcelona and also wore the jersey of Atletico Madrid and Genoa before joining Inter in the summer of 2009.

Motta collected Serie A, Champions League and Coppa Italia medals in his first season at Giuseppe Meazza, but the club is looking to generate funds for their summer transfer market activities, and could sacrifice the Brazilian-born star.

His current contract with Inter runs until the summer of 2013, and he currently sits 406th in the Castrol EDGE Rankings.
