Milan look to sign Shevcenko on loan

Andriy Shevchenko's nightmare at Chelsea looks like it's coming to an end with Milan exploring the possibility of re-signing the Ukraine international on loan. The 31-year-old has had a torrid two years since his £30m transfer to the London club in 2006.

Despite scoring only nine league goals in 47 appearances for Chelsea, Shevchenko still retains cult status at the San Siro thanks to his 127 goals in 208 league games for the Rossoneri. Milan director Silvano Ramaccioni has said that the Serie A club are close to closing the deal which would see the Ukrainian return the club.

Chelsea boss Roman Abramovich had been against selling Shevchenko, but he now seems to have changed his opinion after finally discovering that signing players for the Premiership isn't the same as putting together a Master League team in Pro Evo. Also it's clear that the striker doesn't figure in Luiz Felipe Scolari's plans. The £30m didn't even feature amongst the substitutes in Sunday's 4-0 win over Portsmouth.
