Gilardino's transfer to Milan put on hold
(China Daily)
Updated: 2005-07-14 05:59

The 22-year-old centre forward, who finished second in last year's Italian league scorers' list with 23 goals and scored the crucial goal that kept Parma up and condemned Bologna to the second tier in their relegation play-off, was reportedly wanted by several big clubs including English Premiership champions Chelsea, Juventus and Inter Milan.

Gilardino would have been the second striker signed by AC Milan in the past week as they also secured the services of veteran Italy international Christian Vieri from city rivals Inter - though they had to let Argentinian striker Hernan Crespo return to Chelsea, who refused to let him stay on loan.

Should he sign he and Vieri will face competition from Ukrainian hitman Andriy Shevchenko, Filippo Inzaghi and Danish striker Jon Dahl Tomasson.
