AC Milan are planning a shock move for AS Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi.Sportmediaset says Milan are lining up a sensational move for De Rossi after losing Nigel de Jong for the season with an Achilles injury.

De Rossi has stated in the past he couldn't contemplate playing for another Italian club, but circumstances have changed this season with the midfielder frozen out by Roma coach Zdenek Zeman.

Making him all the more attractive to Milan is that he won't be Cup-tied from the Champions League.

Milan will have to break their wage structure to sign De Rossi, whose €6 million salary far outstrips their ceiling.
