Milan ‘wanted’ Simon Kjaer last summer

Milan attempted to sign Denmark captain Simon Kjaer last summer but have not approached the Sevilla defender this summer, says agent Mikkel Beck.

The Rossoneri have been linked with the 29-year-old – who joined Los Rojiblancos from Fenerbahce a year ago – amid rumours that Leonardo Bonucci could leave the club.

“I have seen the rumours, but I have not spoken directly with AC Milan in the last few days,” Beck told Goal.com.

“What I can say is that AC Milan were showing interest in Simon last summer at one point, but in the end he chose to go to Sevilla.

“I am not surprised by the rumours. When a player performs on such a high level at a World Cup, as Simon did as Denmark captain, then obviously there will be media speculation – and other big clubs will probably focus on him as well.

“Simon is happy to play for Sevilla in a great league like La Liga, and the club have big ambitions. Simon likes that, and he has just returned after the World Cup and started his pre-season, preparing to be ready to go all in to make it a great season.”
