Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande are considering some sort of link up with Italian giants Milan, reports the Corriere dello Sport.
Marcello Lippi, who coaches the outfit, will show representatives of Guangzhou around the Diavolo’s Milanello training base in December.
They will also be present at San Siro for the Italian side’s Champions League game against Zenit St Petersburg on December 4.
It is being suggested that the Chinese could buy a stake in the club to form the start of some kind of partnership.
It is even being claimed that Lippi, a former Coach of Juventus and Inter, could eventually end up as an official with the Rossoneri.
