AC Milan have denied that Mario Balotelli is available for transfer this summer, saying that all of the suggestions that he wants to leave are simply the result of newspaper speculation, as reported by Italian newspaper La Gazetta dello Sport.
Adriano Galliani has said that the Italian international has never, in fact, asked to leave the San Siro this summer, despite constant speculation that both the striker and his club want him to leave the Italian giants this summer.
Galliani has also denied that AC Milan are specifically interested in Joel Campbell as well, despite speculation in Tuttosport that the club are seeking to sign him through a player plus cash deal for Mario Balotelli, valuing Balotelli at around £8 million cash.
Galliani said: “Balotelli has never asked to be sold.
“He will 100% stay at Milan, but 99% of the newspapers say he will go.”
While this will not end the speculation on Arsenal’s end that they might be interested in the controversial striker joining the club, it does suggest that AC Milan are not particularly interested in selling their talismanic hitman.
