Real Madrid have decided to sell Lopez after signing Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas from Levante earlier this month.

The likes of Liverpool and Monaco have been credited with an interest in Lopez, but Milan seem to have won the race for his signature.

Lopez is expected to undergo a medical in Milan early next week before signing a three-year deal at the San Siro.

Inzaghi believes Lopez will be a valuable addition to his squad.

“I am very happy, as Milan are doing things in the best way and I hope we can do well together with the team,” Inzaghi told the club's official website.

“Diego Lopez is very important, an experienced goalkeeper who will improve our squad.”

Inzaghi also suggested that they could re-sign Taarabt after he enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Milan last season.

""Should the gift of mid-August be Taraabt ? Let's see."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
