No Chelsea reunion for Gattuso and Ancelotti as Milan fear stars will leave

Gennaro Gattuso's agent has quashed reports his client will leave AC Milan this summer.  

The Rossoneri fans are fearing an exodus of players after Kaka's big-money move to Real Madrid earlier this week.

World Cup-winning Italy midfielder Gattuso has been linked with a move to Chelsea, where former Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has taken the reins.

But his agent, Andrea D'Amico, has played down such talk.  

He said: 'I have never said that Gattuso will leave. There could be offers for him by clubs because who wouldn't want a player like Gattuso?  

'Rino (Gattuso) was saddened to see Ancelotti leave because he has a special relationship with him. 

'(But) his mission is at Milan and he wants to stay.'  

Gattuso, who missed most of the season with a knee injury, is currently on international duty with Italy in South Africa, preparing for the Confederations Cup.
