Milan have played down reports linking them with a move for Chelsea defender William Gallas.

Gallas raised doubts over his future at Stamford Bride over the weekend by suggesting that he might be tempted by a move away from the club.

Gallas had indicated that he would be interested in a transfer to Milan if he were to leave Chelsea, but the Serie A club have played down of a move.

“It gives us pleasure that Gallas shows affection for us,” said Milan sporting director Ariedo Braida.

“But we won’t make a move for him.”
