Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City look to have missed out on any potential deal for Adil Rami, with AS reporting that the controversial Valencia defender has agreed to join AC Milan on loan in January.

27-year-old centre-back Rami, who joined the La Liga outfit from Lille in 2011, had been widely expected to leave the Mestalla Stadium after his stinging public criticism of coach Miroslav Đukić last month earned him a one week unpaid suspension.

After complaining that his relationship with his manager was "not good", the France international was linked with a switch to a number of European clubs, including the aforementioned Premier League title rivals as well as Rafael Benitez's Napoli and Russian side Rubin Kazan.

Earlier today, it was reported that AC Milan were the latest side keen on a move for Rami, with Massimiliano Allegri's men reportedly eyeing an initial loan move with a view to a permanent deal next summer.

Now, AS have reported that Rami is indeed set to move to the San Siro on loan in January until the end of the campaign, with the Italians having agreed to pay his wages in full for the duration of his stay. 

The two teams are also said to have already agreed upon a €7 million fee should the Rossoneri wish to sign the player on a full-time basis in the summer. It is also believed that such a deal would include an initial four-year deal for Rami.
