Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has invited unsettled Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko to slap in a transfer request.

Galliani said he was in frequent contact with the Ukrainian, and suggested the pair may have discussed a demand to leave the Stamford Bridge club.

"I speak to Sheva often. He knows what he has to do," Galliani told Il Giornale newspaper.

Earlier this week, club president Silvio Berlusconi said he wanted to re-sign the player sold to Chelsea last summer, but that he would not shell out the same £30 million the Premiership side paid for him.

Galliani also claimed it was unlikely that Internazionale would sell them Brazilian striker Adriano, citing the profitable dealings Milan have had with their city rivals.

"We have signed four players from Inter. Andrea Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf are still first team players, Dario Simic and Christian Brocchi just behind, while the ex-Rossoneri we sent to [Inter] are long gone.

"After these precedents, I doubt Massimo Moratti would hand us his Press Officer, let alone Adriano!"
