Milan travel for Guardiola talks

A report in Gazzetta dello Sport claims Milan are poised to fly out to the United States for a meeting with Pep Guardiola.

The Gazzetta maintains that Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has asked Vice-President Adriano Galliani to go and speak with Guardiola in New York, where the 41-year-old has moved himself and his family during his self-imposed sabbatical.

The former Barcelona boss is taking time out from the game in a bid to recharge his batteries and has been linked with the job at the San Siro for next season.

Nonetheless, Guardiola is certain to be on the radar of a number of clubs, particularly from the Premier League where he is known to be keen to move, and Milan would have to significantly improve their squad if he is to be tempted to Serie A.

Milan have suffered four defeats in the opening seven games of the 2012-13 campaign and boss Massimiliano Allegri is currently fighting to stave off suggestions he is about to be replaced.
