AC Milan plot bid for Cagliari defender
According to Tuttomercatoweb the Rossoneri are looking to make Astori their final transfer this summer.
The defender began his career with Milan’s youth academy and has alluded in the past to returning to the San Siro.
Massimiliano Allegri coached Astori during his Cagliari tenure and is rumoured to have requested the player be signed.
The Italian international would still be a costly operation as the Sardinian’s want at least €10 million.
The player was left out of Milan’s 3-1 victory over Cagliari allegedly due to market pressure and a niggling injury.
Astori has been capped five times for Italy and will be looking to secure a place for the 2015 World Cup in Brazil.
