Atleti want Montolivo, says agent

Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortund and Arsenal are all interested in Riccardo Montolivo, according to his agent.

The Milan captain has been one of the few bright sparks for the Italian giants this season, with the club struggling to make the European places by the end of the campaign.

Despite the lure of Champions League football however, the midfielder’s representative has insisted that his client is happy at San Siro.

 “There have been a few polite enquiries,” Giovanni Branchini told MilanNews.it.

“From Atletico Madrid, Dortmund and Arsenal to name a few. All of them wanted to know whether Montolivo was available.

“At the moment though, I really do think it would be very difficult to see the player leaving Milan.

“Milan have had a troubled season and I think I can say that he has been one of the highlights.

“He has become an important part of the Rossonero starting line-up this season. He is very happy with the club he is at, and the club and the fans are very happy with him.

“He has a contract until June 2016 so it is not a priority to talk about a renewal just yet. It’s something we will maybe discuss next year.”
