Milan Star Gennaro Gattuso Off To Chelsea? Never Say Never - Agent

The midfielder’s representative admits Milan are unlikely to get rid of his client, but "he was very attached to former boss Ancelotti…"
Milan fans are up in arms after the club’s decision to sell Kaka to Real Madrid and there are fears that the Brazilian’s departure will prompt a mass exodus from the club.

Former coach Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly keen to reunite with a number of Rossoneri players at his new club Chelsea and Italy midfielder Andrea Pirlo and Brazilian striking prodigy Alexandre Pato are said to be on his radar.

And now Gennaro Gattuso’s representative has refused to close the door on a move to the Premier League club: “The rapport between the player and the coach [Ancelotti] is very strong,” agent Andrea D’Amico confessed to 24oredisport.com.

“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.

“Then again, in the transfer market, never say never…”

Gattuso made a name for himself at Scottish giants Rangers in 1997-98 and the 31-year-old admitted last year that he is keen to have another crack at the British game.

“Gennaro has the characteristics and the qualities needed to play in the English league,” noted D’Amico.

“Should a very important offer come in, I feel that negotiations could be opened, but no bids have arrived so far.”
