Milan deny Shevchenko exit

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has rejected rumors that Andriy Shevchenko will join Real Madrid in January.

Real are looking for attacking reinforcements following the long-term knee injury sustained by striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Inter Milan striker Hernán Crespo and Manchester United's Carlos Tévez have also been linked with a move to the Spanish capital.

Spanish newspaper Marca claimed that Milan are ready to let Shevchenko leave for Real as temporary cover for the injured van Nistelrooy.

The Ukrainian star has failed to make any great impression since rejoining the Rossoneri from Chelsea this summer.

However, Galliani insists there is no chance Shevchenko will leave in January.

"Technically the transfer wouldn't be impossible because a player can move twice in one season," he told

"However, Shevchenko will not be leaving. He is untouchable and he will keep playing for us."
