Italian champions AC Milan have ruled out pursuing Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas because he is too expensive. The Rossoneri don't plan to make too many changes to their Serie A-winning squad this summer but vice-president Adriano Galliani insists there will be one area where they will need a replacement.
With Gennaro Gattusso on the verge of leaving the club and Andrea Pirlo's recent defection to Juventus, Milan need to strengthen in midfield but Galliani admitted that Fabregas would not be a player they will go after.
"From here until 31st August, Milan will buy a player that will be a left midfielder," Galliani told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"(Napoli winger Marek) Hamsik and Fabregas can play in that role.
"We have never asked for Hamsik although we don't rule him out and as for Fabregas, he is too expensive."
