Italian giants officially confirm Man United talks are in progress to get business wrapped up

Italian giants AC Milan have confirmed they are in talks with Manchester United about playing a prestige friendly in the new year, according to the Daily Mail website.

Neither club is in the Champions League or Europa League this season and they are exploring the options of playing each other in a lucrative one-off game, almost certainly in the Middle East.

AC Milan’s director Umberto Gandini confirmed a friendly with United was on the agenda.

Gandini said: “This is something we have been talking about for a few weeks and we have a committed interest to do something together.

“It’s just a question to find the right date and then to find the right place.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
