Juventus and AC Milan have lost out on the opportunity to sign Real Madrid midfielder Fernando Gago, according to Italia.

During the Merengues' presentation of high-profile signing Kaka on Tuesday evening, sporting director Jorge Valdano revealed that Gago would be remaining at the club and be assigned the number 5 jersey he had asked for.

The Argentine has been linked with the two Serie A giants, but it appears they will have to explore other options.

It is no secret the Bianconeri are trying to reinforce their central midfield as they have also been tracking Gaetano D'Agostino and Gago's los Blancos team-mate Mahamadou Diarra.

Meanwhile, with Chelsea chasing playmaker Andrea Pirlo, the Rossoneri were eyeing the 23-year-old as a potential replacement should their Italian international depart for Stamford Bridge. However, it has been confirmed he will be staying in the Spanish capital.

Gago joined Real Madrid in 2007 from Boca Juniors and has made over 90 appearances for the club since that time.
