AC Milan are laying the foundations for a shock move for Flamengo star Adriano.

Corriere dello Sport says Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani had scouts check on Adriano last week, well aware that he is the championship's top scorer this season.

Interestingly, the former Inter striker has not sold his villa in Como and when asked about the interest of Milan, Adriano's agent, Gilmar Rinaldi, said: "Could he go to Milan? Why not?!"

The likes of Andrea Pirlo, Beppe Favalli and Clarence Seedorf all made the move to Milan after previous experience at Inter.
