New Benfica coach Giovanni Trapattoni has conceded that he is aiming to bring Milan playmaker Rui Costa back to his homeland.
The former Italy manager is a known admirer of the mercurial midfielder and is now ready to test Milan's resolve to keep the player.
''I have have known him for many years,'' confirmed Trapattoni.
''I can say he is fantastic and that I'd like him here playing for me.''
Although both Milan and the player have previously stated that there will be no parting of ways, it is thought Benfica are to make an official approach.
