Italian agent Oscar Damiani has urged AC Milan to go for Didier Drogba ahead of his Chelsea teammate Andriy Shevchenko as they seek a replacement for crocked striker Ronaldo.

Damiani explained: "I see a return to the Rossonero for Shevchenko as difficult, even after the injury of Ronaldo. Sheva is now over 30 and I believe Milan should invest in new targets.

"Ronaldinho and Drogba? It's difficult to see the first arriving in Italy, moreover, as he is in a declining phase, but the second one is certainly a good player."
