Marco van Basten has hinted he fancies taking the AC Milan job.

The Dutch legend has been tipped to take over from Leonardo at the end of the season and, when asked about these reports, remained extremely vague.

“We’ll talk about this when it is the right time, but now is not the right time,” said Van Basten.

“Milan still have work to do in Serie A this season. I won’t say anything, as it is not right.

“I have always been happy in Milan, but the fans must focus on the campaign at hand. It’s just not right to discuss next season at this juncture.”

He added: “I am pleased to be linked with Milan, but nobody has contacted me.”
