AC Milan have denied speculation linking them with a move for Chelsea striker Didier Drogba as a replacement for Antonio Cassano.

The 33-year-old has one-year left on his current deal and is unlikely to be offered a new contract by the West London club.

The Ivory Coast international did not enjoy his best campaign last term, scoring 11 goals in 36 Premier League appearances, with only four coming in his last 20 games.

Drogba’s place in the Blues side has come into doubt following the £50million arrival of Fernando Torres from Liverpool in January.

He will be under even more pressure, following the arrival of Andre Villas-Boas as manager, with rumours circulating he wants to sign Falcao from FC Porto.

The Blues boss may decide to cash in on Drogba, to free up space on the wage bill. He was also being touted as a possible makeweight in a £30million move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric.

Reports in Italy have claimed Milan want to replace Cassano, who is a target for Fiorentina, with Drogba this summer.

But Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has told Corriere dello Sport: “We are covered in attack and hence, Drogba will not arrive.”
