AC Milan open talks with minders of Chelsea's Drogba

AC Milan have begun talks with the representatives of Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

The Observer says Milan chief Ariedo Braida met two of Drogba's representatives in a Paris hotel on Tuesday to discuss Milan's reinforcement plans. But any transfer could depend on whether the Italian club qualify for next season's Champions League.

Braida informed them that Milan intended to buy Ronaldinho from Barcelona, bring Andriy Shevchenko back from Chelsea and sign Drogba as a principle centre-forward. Salary was not discussed, although Milan are expected at least to match the Ivorian's current weekly wage of around £90,000.
