AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has admitted interest in Benfica midfielder Axel Witsel.

This is not the first time the Rossoneri have been linked with the 23-year-old Benfica midfielder.

"I can only say that Witsel is a player we like a great deal, but at this moment we are not in negotiations for him as a potential signing," Vice-President Galliani told O'Jogo.

"Is he too expensive for the Rossoneri funds? This is not something I intend to talk about."
