Milan are determined to make a move to sign Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado on loan, Calciomercato.it has revealed.
According to the report, manager Vincenzo Montella held a private meeting with Blues boss Antonio Conte to understand if the South American is for sale.
Milan and Chelsea will later on today face each other in a pre-season friendly.
The Colombia international spent last season on loan at Juventus and the Bianconeri made it clear last month that they were interested in keeping him in Turin.
But it now seems Milan are in pole position to sign him if Conte agrees to let him go out on loan.
On Friday, the 28-year-old declared that his objective at the moment is to enjoy pre-season with Chelsea.
"We all work on that purpose [to be a regular in Antonio Conte's team], I have to train well and strong and let's see what God wants," he is quoted as saying by the Evening Standard.
"I am glad of being here [for the ICC tournament].
"It's important for us to do well and make a good pre-season.
"We have been working well and looking for what the coach wants. This is a good opportunity to show what we have already worked on in previous training sessions and games."
