AC Milan seek to raise cash for Silva bid

AC Milan are ready to make an offer for Sao Paulo defender Alex Silva.

Controcampo says Milan's co-ownership sale of Ignazio Abate to Torino and Alberto Paloschi's pending move to Reggina will be used to fund a £3 million offer for Silva.

Milan are moving for the Brazil international over injury concerns for Alessandro Nesta.
