Agent insists AC Milan no Barcelona rival in Rossi chase

The agent of Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi denies AC Milan could trump Barcelona for the Italy international.

The Rossoneri have been tentatively linked after the striker's recent heroics for Italy, but Federico Pastorello says he knows nothing of their apparent interest.

"I have never had any contact with Milan," Pastorello told Sky Sport Italia.

Barcelona seem to be in pole position to net the former Manchester United player and the representative confirmed their admiration.

"Rossi could go and strengthen Barcelona," he continued. "They have been following him with interest for some time.

"Giuseppe is 24 and he feels ready to play for a big club and Barcelona would be a dream come true for him."
