Manchester United, AC Milan in talks over friendly

Manchester United and AC Milan are in talks regarding the possibility of arranging a friendly between the two teams at the start of 2015.

AC Milan director Umberto Gandini has revealed that the Italian side and Manchester United could meet in a friendly at the start of 2015.

With neither side qualifying for this season's Champions League or Europa League, both clubs are keen to play a fixture away from domestic action, and Gandini has stated that talks are ongoing between the two European giants.

Gandini is quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "This is something that we have been talking about for a few weeks and we have a committed interest to do something together."

Manchester United, managed by Louis van Gaal, currently sit in eighth place in the Premier League table, while Filippo Inzaghi's AC Milan are third in Serie A.
