Sao Paulo president Juvenal Juvencio has confirmed the visit of AC Milan chief Ariedo Braida.

Juvencio revealed Braida was making a check on Sao Paulo midfielder Casemiro and defender Rhodolfo, though highly-rated teammate Lucas was not mentioned..

"The offers for our players from Italy make us happy, because they show that our development work is proving successful," the president told MilanNews.it.

"Lucas? The Italian interest is less strong than elsewhere.

"Casemiro and Rhodolfo? It's true, Braida was here to watch the game, but Sao Paulo does not want to sell."
