AC Milan believe they can prise Bastian Schweinsteiger away from Bayern Munich this summer.

The Germany midfielder is a favourite of Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri, who has requested his signing.

The Rossoneri have already been in touch with Bayern and been quoted a €35 million price for Schweini - a fee well within the range of Milan patron Silvio Berlusconi.

Milan will lean on Mark van Bommel, a good friend of Schweinsteiger's, to convince his former Bayern teammate about moving to Italy.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has spoken about signing a 'Mr X' and the German's profile fits the sort of big-name capture the champions have been promising fans.
