AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella has insisted that his side are not in the running to sign unsettled Cheslea midfielder Cesc Fabregas. The Spain international has made a solitary league start for the Blues this term.

The Rossoneri have been strongly associated with the World Cup winner this month after they were speculated to have failed with a summer bid for his signature.

However, Montella has cleared the air by claiming that Fabregas is not the sort of player they are after, and are only interested in finding a suitable replacement for the injured Riccardo Montolivo.

"We're looking for a player who has the characteristics that Montolivo has, who can also operate in a defensive-midfield two," he told the Sun. "Fabregas? He doesn't have those characteristics."

Fabregas has since his career take a downward trend this season with manager Antonio Conte not seeing him as a regular in the centre of the park.
