AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani insists the Italian giants are not looking to sign Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas this summer.

Fabregas is once again being linked with a close-season return to former club Barcelona and it had been thought the Rossoneri could join the hunt.

However, Galliani has confirmed that the Spain international would simply be too costly for the San Siro outfit, meaning he is not on the club's radar.

"Compete with Barcelona for (Cesc) Fabregas?" he told Sky Sports Italia. "Fabregas is an Arsenal player and would have an exorbitant cost. At this time he's not a target of ours."

Galliani has also played down speculation the club are keen on landing Bayern Munich's Bastian Schweinsteiger, Real Madrid's Kaka and Fiorentina's Ricardo Montolivo, who is yet to accept the club's contract extension.

"Schweinsteiger? No, he's a Bayern Munich icon," he continued.

"Kaka? These are all difficult deals with great financial issues. We are calm. Now, let's see what happens.

"Montolivo? It's a market opportunity. But we don't want to create any problems with the (Fiorentina's owner) Della Valle family.

"If the player doesn't renew his contract with Fiorentina then it won't be down to any interference from AC Milan."
