Kanoute would welcome Milan move
Wednesday 25 March 2009
Sevilla striker Frederic Kanoute has welcomed AC Milan's reported interest in him. The 31-year-old former Tottenham and West Ham forward has been linked with a summer switch to the San Siro.
Sevilla are believed to be willing to let the Mali international leave as his contract is set to expire at the end of next season.
"My ambition has always been to play for a great high-quality team and it is a fantastic feeling to be tracked by Milan," said Kanoute. "I have always said that Sevilla are a fantastic club, but you never know in life. Milan have so many marvellous players and it is a dream move. However, we will have to wait and see what happens at the end of the season."
However, one player who seems certain to be staying at the club is Enzo Maresca, whose agent insists the midfielder will not be moving to Internazionale this summer.
It had been reported that Inter were keen to sign the former Juventus player at the end of this season but his agent Candido Fortunato believes that scenario is extremely unlikely.
He said: "Maresca has a contract with Sevilla until 2011. Inter? I think it's just paper talk which is linked to the past. There hasn't been any contact from anyone whatsoever. I certainly don't think Maresca will return to Italy and play for Inter.There is always a will to return to Italy, but for now it's far too early to talk about teams and contracts."
Elsewhere in Spain, Netherlands international Rafael van der Vaart believes the arrival of Juande Ramos at Real Madrid was disastrous for him. The 26-year-old midfielder has started only one match since the turn of the year and is currently being linked with a summer transfer.
"I believe that clearly I am the biggest loser from the departure of Bernd Schuster and then the arrival of Juande Ramos," He told De Telegraaf. "Apparently the coach does not trust me and that is that. If I had the feeling that I could change things then I would speak to him, but right now I do not have many hopes. It has been one of the hardest times of my career."
