Botafogo star Clarence Seedorf linked again with a move back to AC Milan
Botafogo’s midfielder Clarence Seedorf is once again being linked with a move back to AC Milan after visiting the Italian giants training ground during his holidays.
Seedorf, 36, is a legend at San Siro and Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport have reported that AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi is keen to have the veteran back at the club, despite the fact that vice-president Adriano Galliani and coach Massimiliano Allegri want to build a younger side.
The report also stated that Seedorf was thinking of returning to Milan on loan in January for the remainder of the season and then hanging up his boots to work with Berlusconi.
“The president is and always will be important for Milan,” told reporters.
“I have no doubt that the team will again be competitive in Italy and Europe. It's always nice to come home, talk to everyone, is something pleasurable.
“I enjoyed watching the boys, I noticed a lot of enthusiasm and I realised that there is a great ambiance.”
However, Botafogo are keen to keep hold of Seedorf, who has a contract until June 2014, after he has quickly become a key member of a young squad for coach Oswaldo de Oliveira.
