Former Manchester United youngster Rodrigo Possebon could be set for a shock move to AC Milan in the January transfer window, according to reports on talkSPORT.
United sold Possebon to Santos last year and it was thought Sir Alex Ferguson had hoped to use the sale of the midfielder as a sweetener for a potential deal for striker Neymar.
The 22-year-old had been tipped for big things at Old Trafford having signed in January 2008. However, a broken leg suffered during a Carling Cup game served as a major setback to his progression through United's ranks.
He was sent out on-loan to Portuguese club Braga in a bid to get his career back on track but the spell proved ultimately unsuccessful and he moved back to Brazil with Santos last summer.
Ferguson may be left to rue his decision to let Possebon leave with the midfielder flourishing in the Brazilian league. His form has reportedly alerted Milan who are thought to be ready to offer him a chance to play in Serie A when the transfer window reopens in January.
