AC Milan have reiterated that they will not be moving for Mario Balotelli during the January transfer window.
Italian international striker Balotelli appears to be at a crossroads at Manchester City, where he has fallen out of favour of late.
The former Inter Milan hit-man has found a regular starting berth in Roberto Mancini’s first XI hard to come by, and the pair were recently filmed in a heated training ground exchange.
The rumour mill persists with stories linking Balotelli to a move back to Italy, but not for the first time, the Rossoneri have ruled out a bid for the hot-headed striker.
"If no-one leaves, no-one will arrive,” Milan’s chief executive, Adriano Galliani, told Sport Mediaset.
“Mario Balotelli? We have five strikers for two/three roles, so we are fine.
"I always said that if only one striker were to leave, we would not have taken anyone, and we have sold only Pato.
“AC Milan needs a bit of time to get back to the top, but I'm sure we will. We want to invest in young players also in this market window."
