[Mercato] Milan confirm double bid

AC Milan have confirmed they have tabled bids for Real Madrid's Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Sevilla's Luis Fabiano.

Klaas-Jan HuntelaarThe Rossoneri have limited funds to bolster their squad despite Ricardo Kaka's unpopular 67million euros switch from the San Siro to Madrid.

A forward is high on Leonardo's summer shopping list and they have now confirmed bids have been tabled for both Huntelaar and Fabiano.

Huntelaar only joined the Spanish giants in January, but their unprecedented summer shopping spree means he is likely now surplus to requirements.

The interest in Huntelaar and Fabiano follows Milan's failure to capture number one target Edin Dzeko from Wolfsburg. The German champions rejected all ideas of a sale despite the Bosnian wanting a dream move to the San Siro.

Milan have also been linked with a move for Arsenal's Emmanuel Adebayor, who's price tag was reportedly too steep, and Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o, who's wage demands are too high according to vice-President Adriano Galliani.

"Milan have made offers for Huntelaar and Fabiano, but it's a difficult market because Real Madrid's spending has meant prices have doubled since last year," confirmed Galliani.

"Eto'o is an important player, but he's asking for too much money. We don't hold much hope of reaching a deal. This is a time to maintain balance."
