Carlos is reportedly attracting interest from Italian giants AC Milan.

Both journalist Rudy Galetti and Spanish outlet AS, have reported Carlos is on the Rossoneri’s radar.

Milan were beaten to the title by city rivals Inter, and a summer of change is expected, with manager Stefano Pioli reportedly set to be replaced at the end of the season.

Both sources report the Italian giants want a new centre half, and Carlos was the “dream” target for the San Siro outfit.

It was also added that whilst contact hadn’t been made yet, it’s not expected to be long before it arrives.
