Contento won’t join Milan in January

Milan’s hopes of adding Bayern Munich full-back Diego Contento to their ranks have been dealt a blow as his agent has denied that he will move in January.
The Rossoneri have been searching for a new left-back and they have signed Urby Emanuelson, but his future is expected to be in midfield. Contento, therefore, has emerged as a target.
But Christian Romberg, the player’s agent, has dismissed these rumours, saying: “He has a contract until 2013 and I think he is part of Bayern’s project.
“The will of the player? He is well at his current club, of course like every footballer he would like to play more. If attractive offers arrive then we will review them.
“But I don’t think he will move in January. Indeed, I think as early as next week he could be used by the manager [Louis van Gaal].”

Contento, 20, was born and raised in Munich but has Italian parents and his alleged desire to represent Italy instead of Germany has seen him linked with a switch to Serie A. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
