Telelombardia says Milan chiefs have refused to deny reports last week that Gattuso has demanded a transfer ahead of the January market, so fueling talk of his planned departure.
Gattuso is upset with his situation at Milan, where he is now playing second fiddle to Massimo Ambrosini in coach Leonardo's first team plans. The midfielder also misses the man-management of Carlo Ancelotti, now in charge of Chelsea.
Former Rangers star Gattuso wants to leave Milan in January and has two offers on the table - from Manchester City and the UAE. The Italy international favours England as he still hopes to play for Italy in next year's World Cup.
