CSKA Moscow winger Milos Krasic has denied reports he has agreed to join AC Milan, but admits he could be allowed to leave for a big club in January.
Speculation in both Russia and Italy has claimed that Krasic will link up with Serie A giants Milan in a 15million euros (£13.8m) deal in the winter transfer window.
But while the Serbia international is aware he may have been scouted by Milan, he is not expecting an imminent move to the San Siro.
"If you ask me, then this is nothing more than a rumour," Krasic told Novosti. "AC Milan is still far, very far away.
"If one club is watching you on one occasion, that is like nothing, because all the big clubs are sending scouts many times before actually signing the deal.
"Maybe AC Milan was at our last game, and maybe my goal against Dinamo (Moscow) sent them a good message, but that still doesn't mean a thing.
"Maybe I will sign for AC Milan, but, of course, they would have to send an official offer."
The 25-year-old has also revealed Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have shown an interest in the past, and that he would have joined the German powerhouses if Franck Ribery had left the Allianz Arena.
He added: "It is true (Real were interested), everything was very serious, but in the end both clubs couldn't find an agreement.
"Even Bayern was after me, but they would only sign me if Ribery left. In the end he stayed and the transfer was automatically blocked.
"But I would love to play in Munich, as Bayern is a big club and I would be making a big step in my career.
"Now, I have been told that I could leave in January if an offer from a big club arrives. I have been at CSKA for five years now and it is true that I would like to try something else.
"I think I have earned my spurs in Moscow and in January I would like to go somewhere else."
