Milan could be willing to part with Ronaldinho and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to raise funds for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Keisuke Honda.
Vice-President Adriano Galliani has confirmed that the Rossoneri are interested in Ibra, but we must sell before we can bring in any new players.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the two stars sacrificed to bring in the Swede will be Huntelaar and Ronaldinho.
The Dutch striker, currently at the World Cup, flopped in his debut Serie A season and is surplus to requirements under new Coach Massimiliano Allegri.
After turning down Fenerbahce, its reported Huntelaar could be talked into accepting a transfer for Bayern Munich worth 15m.
The rest of the cash for 40m-rated Ibrahimovic would be raised by selling off Ronaldinho, who has not yet extended his contract amid a row over wages.
The clubs willing to splash out the personal terms he requires include Manchester City, LA Galaxy and Olympiacos.
Another alternative is Marco Borriello, who could be pushed out of the side if Ibrahimovic does join Milan, and is valued at around 18m.
The Rossoneri are keeping an eye on a World Cup revelation with a reported 10m offer for Japanese star Honda.
The free kick specialist is currently owned by CSKA Moscow and they consider the bid to be too low, especially after his exploits in South Africa.
