are the latest team to be interested in ’s Sandro. The midfielder was an integral part of ’s team last season, but since suffering an injury and with the introduction of Scott Parker, he may have to look for first team football elsewhere.

The Rossoneri have an aging midfield, with Gennaro Gettuso suffering a potentially career threatening eye problem, considering a return to Holland and possibly retiring.

Therefore manager is looking to rebuild his team around the highly-rated Sandro, who impressed him with a man-of-the-match display against the Milan in last season’s Champions League.

This new-look midfield would also include two other Brazilians; Ganso of Santos and Sao Paulo’s Casimiro. The Italian club are looking to spend around £40m on the trio; with £25m on both Ganso and Casimiro, with a further £15m on Sandro.

paid £14m for the 22-year-old, so given that he is on a long contract they may be unwilling to let him go if Redknapp wants to keep him in the squad.

Manchester United have also been linked with in the past, but given Alex Ferguson’s midfield options it is unlikely he would be a first team regular.

In reality if Milan are serious about signing this player they may need their CEO, Adriano Galliani, to sanction a much larger bid, but whether he will want to go much higher is another matter.
