Cagliari goalkeeper Frederico Marchetti has played down interest from AC Milan.

In just two seasons the shot-stopper has flown up the ranks to become Gianluigi Buffon's understudy for the Azzurri.

"I am not thinking about Milan right now," he said in today's Press conference from the Sestriere training camp.

"I am a Cagliari player and I do my best for my team. Besides, I want to focus on South Africa."

Marchetti had been linked with Juventus, but the likelihood of a Milan move is even stronger now that ex-Cagliari Coach Max Allegri is set to take over.

"He did well in his two years in Sardinia. He deserves the chance to lead Milan, as he is a great man as well as a great Coach."
