Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo has played down reports linking him with a return to Milan.

The Argentinian forward is expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, and could be set to return to the club where he spent a year on loan the season before season.

However, the 30-year-old admitted that nothing had been finalised yet.

“With Milan there is nothing concrete and unfortunately the scandal situation doesn’t help the transfer market,” he said.

“I’d willingly come back to Italy, despite the fact that I feel good at Chelsea.”

There has been a suggestion that Milan could sign Crespo in part-exchange for Andrii Shevchenko who is expected to complete a move to Chelsea shortly.

Crespo backed Shevchenko’s decision to move to Chelsea for his English-speaking family.

“Shevchenko choosing Chelsea for his family? Family comes before everything,” he commented.

“When a person talks about family there is nothing else to say. For my family I’d like to come back to Italy.

“I can tell Shevchenko that at Chelsea he would feel really good. (Jose) Mourinho, the team and the people are fantastic.”
