AC Milan defender Mattia de Sciglio is flattered by interest from Real Madrid.

The young fullback is being linked with Carlo Ancelotti's Real this season and admits the rumours do excite him.

"It is good to hear about interest from teams like Real Madrid. I hope to play in a competitive AC Milan as we were in the past, but in football you never know.

"If the club decides, for economic reasons, my sale, I will cherish the offers I receive."
