De Sciglio opens AC Milan door for Santon

Mattia De Sciglio has welcomed speculation that Milan could sign NewcastleÔÇÖs Davide Santon in the summer.

Although Santon could potentially provide competition for a first team shirt at San Siro next season, De Sciglio has no concerns about his possible arrival.

ÔÇ£Santon is a great player,ÔÇØ De Sciglio, who made his Italy debut in the 2-2 draw with Brazil last night, stated. ÔÇ£He did well at Inter and he is doing well with Newcastle.

ÔÇ£MilanÔÇÖs new policy is to focus on youth so Santon would be a great reinforcement for us.ÔÇØ

De Sciglio, 20, and Santon, 22, are both Under-21 international full-backs who are also in the plans of Azzurri boss Cesare Prandelli.

Santon yesterday revealed that, as a Milan fan, he would be tempted by the idea of joining the Rossoneri.
