AC Milan boss Allegri considers Fiorentina playmaker Montolivo as Pirlo replacement

AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri will not rule out moving for Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Montolivo.

While dismissing talk of a swap involving Antonio Cassano, Allegri hasn't hidden his admiration for Montolivo, who could arrive to fill the void left by Andrea Pirlo's move to Juventus.

"He is not another Pirlo, because he has different physical characteristics and style," said Allegri.

"He has shown himself to be a great player in a great team, playing for Italy and the Viola. He has always done well when I have been to watch him."
