AC Milan chief Ariedo Braida denies they're chasing two Portugal-based players.

Benfica forward Ola John and Sporting Lisbon defender Marcos Rojo have been linked with Milan this summer.

"I have a great relationship with the leaders of Benfica," he told Antena 1. "But at this time we are not interested in John.

"Roja and John are good players, but there is no interest from Milan.

"I'm friends with the leaders of many Portuguese teams, but there is no interest in these players."
