Corriere dello Sport says Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is becoming increasingly anxious about landing the Brazilian after talks last week failed to settle on a fee for the midfielder.

Inter president Massimo Moratti is also keen, particularly after the way Roma's midfield overran the defending champs in last night's Super Cup. With Adriano spending the evening in the stands, the Brazilian could be offered to Real in a swap for Emerson.

Meanwhile, Emerson's teammate, Fabio Cannavaro, is the subject of a £2.75 million offer from Juventus. Real, however, won't sell for less than £4 million.
