Milan's director of football admitted scouting for the Galatasaray striker and confirmed their interest after the game.
He said: "We know Inter are interested in Hasan Sas but we have to beat our rivals to him.
"It is true I am here for Sas because we are far from pleased with Serginho's performances at the moment."
Sas was Turkey's star player at the 2002 World Cup finals in Japan/South Korea and his impressive displays for club side Galatasaray have attracted attention from Europe's biggest clubs.
Braida added: "We know that Sas is in fine form at the moment and we will continue to monitor him closely."
The Milan director has a good pedigree of bringing in high profile Turks to the San Siro after successfully installing Gala's current boss Fatih Terim at the helm of Milan, before he went back to the Istanbul giants.
Meanwhile Gala's Brazilian flop Jorge Felipe says he broke his contract with Turkish giants Galatasaray because he did not figure in Terim's plans.
The Samba star was brought in to fill the void left by retiring superstar Gheorghe Hagi but failed to make an impact with the Istanbul side.
Felipe said: "I am not having the chances to play that I expected so I prefer to end my contract with the club and have the chance to join another one.
"The coach doesn't seem to have me in his plans and he leaves me out for important matches.
"I will be meeting with the board members soon and hope to reach an agreement about leaving the club."
The flamboyant midfielder was adamant though that he did not have a problem with the club itself.
He added: "I want to leave only because I don't have any chance of playing.
"I want to make it clear that I don't have any problem with anyone in the club or in the team.
"If I would have been told that I wasn't going to play, I wouldn't have come."
