AC Milan now think to Baptista

While Inter have retired their interest in Julio Baptista, Milan are hoping to tempt Roma with a bid of their own, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.
Leonardo would like the 28-year-old Brazilian to bolster his attack, especially in light of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar's woes up front.
However, Il Corriere believes Roma would be reluctant to sell Baptista to a direct rival for Champions League qualification.
Milan might tempt Roma to the negotiating table, though, simply by offering Marek Jankulovski in exchange.
Roma are looking for another full-back, as they continue their efforts to offload Cicinho either to Spartak Moscow or Rubin Kazan, as the Brazilian's wages are breaking the bank.
Daniele Prade, the Roma director of sport, has been monitoring Atletico Paranaense's Azevedo, but the Brazilian side want to sell him outright rather than loan him to the Giallorossi until the end of the season.
