Milan Ready To Take Back Sheva

Shevchenko had seven glorious years with Milan, until he moved to Chelsea for €45m in 2006. However he has had two miserable seasons in West London, and is desperate to move back to Italy. The 32-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Sampdoria, however the Corriere says that he only has eyes for Milan, and is still very attached to the club, even attending Paolo Maldini’s 40th birthday party in Miami on June 26. At present the Milan door is still closed for Sheva because Chelsea would prefer to sell the striker, rather than release him on loan, and the Rossoneri would refuse to pay the €6.5m that the Blues are asking for. A lot will depend on how new Chelsea coach Luiz Felipe Scolari uses Sheva in the first weeks of the season. If the Ukrainian is used sparsely, he may demand a loan move to Milan before the end of the transfer widow on August 31. The Diavoli have made it known that they are ready to take Sheva on loan, and indeed it is not impossible that this could even take place next January. Roberto Rossi
