It is rumoured that the Russian businessman held a meeting with Inter's Gabriele Oriali at a restaurant in a city hotel, and there are even some claims that Azzurri striker Vieri is due to head for London before the weekend.
As Abramovich and his wife trawled around Milan's shopping district, he was pursued by the paparazzi eager to discover the reasons behind his trip.
The Blues supremo had been spotted in Paris on Wednesday, where he is believed to have met Ronaldinho's brother Roberto Assis.
Inter have insisted they want treble the é¼50 million fee being bandied about relating to Vieri, one of the most consistent strikers in Serie A.
"For now, no-one has asked us for Vieri, less so for é¼50 million," stated Inter's Marco Branca.
"The figure, I believe, is the same one made for (Alessandro) Nesta, (Edgar) Davids and (Thierry) Henry.
"Certainly, if, instead, it would have to be 50 plus 50 plus 50!"
Davids will be remaining at Juventus despite Chelsea's tempting offer.
"We refused Chelsea's bid, that I can confirm, it has been made," stated Luciano Moggi.
"But Davids is part of Juventus' future plan."
