Mexes Not Moving To Milan – Agent

Philippe Mexes is happy at Roma and there is absolutely no chance of him joining AC Milan, according to his agent Olivier Jouanneaux.

Mexes has long-been admired by the Rossoneri and talk of a possible move was fuelled after it was revealed that Silvio Berlusconi had told Roma boss Luciano Spalletti just how much he admired the player.

"I do admire your blonde defender," Berlusconi uttered to the bald-headed tactician as the pair dined at a restaurant on Sunday night.

However the chances that anything concrete could emerge from this interest has been rubbished by Jouanneaux.

"It makes no sense to talk about a transfer now that Philippe has renewed his contract with Roma,” the agent said.

“The interest of Milan is not a new thing for us, because the club has always kept an eye on Philippe.

"Berlusconi's words can only be good for the player and Roma, because it means that the Giallorossi are doing well. He feels good in the capital and is focused on the forthcoming matches, beginning with the Coppa Italia.”

Roma play Torino in the Eternal City tonight hoping to overturn a 3-1 deficit from the first leg in Turin.
